Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has admitted he was in the dark over the club’s signing of Christian Pulisic.
The American was brought in on a £58 million (€64m/$73m) deal on Wednesday, and then loaned back to Borussia Dortmund for the rest of the season.
Despite the Blues splashing out the third highest transfer fee in their history for the 20-year-old, the Italian said he was unsure if the deal would go through.
Sarri did say, however, that he had been consulted on the transfer around a month before the move went through.
The Italian reiterated that he doesn’t involve himself in the club’s transfer business much, instead focusing on matters taking place on the pitch.
