Christian Pulisic has emerged as a highly prospective target for three renowned clubs following Borussia Dortmund’s lucrative intent to make the 19-year-old attacking midfielder accessible for £65 million. Pulisic is currently under contract with the German club till June 2020, but following hindrances with his contract extension, it looks like Dortmund are ready to cash in on their golden boy.
Ever since 2016, Liverpool have been interested in the American starlet, when the Reds made an £11 million bid for the fascinating youngster. Apart from Liverpool, the Express and Mirror report that Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have been keeping tabs on Pulisic, but, it seems Chelsea are already a step forward. Determined to inject fresh blood in their defenses, the Daily Star reports the Blues have officially made contact with Borussia Dortmund in a bid to trigger the 19-year-old’s £65 million contract clause.
According to the Daily Star, the Blues intend to rack up the Pulisic deal as soon as possible, who may be placed in Willian’s spot, since the Blues have been approached by Real Madrid in a double bid deal of a whopping £100 million for Willian and Thibaut Courtois.
Christian Pulisic’s superstar status at the age of 19 has become the hottest topic in America’s footballing world. The Dortmund winger is turning heads since his remarkable debut as the youngest ever Bundesliga player in 2016. He also became the youngest American to play a World Cup qualifier. Since joining the German club, Pulisic has managed to get 20 assists and 12 goals under his belt, as well as earning 21 caps for the USA.
On the whole Christian Pulisic certainly isn’t a finished product, but a whoscored.com player rating an average of 7.02 in 97 appearances is very solid for a player of his age and experience level. With one or two seasons at a top Premier League club, Pulisic could become a serious play-maker in the English league.
