Chelsea 'leading race for Borussia Dortmund attacker Christian Pulisic'

17 November 2018

The winger has said that he is open to a Premier League move, although his current club Borussia Dortmund would be unlikely to let him leave cheaply. "I want to be on the field just like everyone else does". With a more low-key approach and most players unscarred by past setbacks, England in July unexpectedly reached its first World Cup semifinal in 28 years.

"We definitely want a permanent coach and someone who has a plan and someone who has an idea of how we want to play moving forward", Pulisic said.

Pulisic has spoken with new US team general manager Earnie Stewart, who says he will hire the next USA coach later this year, putting the new regime in place ahead of next year's CONCACAF Gold Cup.

"The sky is the limit for a guy like that, he's got so much talent and he's a great young player", Pulisic told Sky Sports.

Pulisic also transferred to the Bundesliga as a teenager and says the pair have developed a close friendship. Adams is expected to move there, too, this winter, leaving MLS's New York Red Bulls for sister club RB Leipzig.

I'm sure there will be plenty more speculation over Pulisic's future over the coming months but it's going to be interesting to see where he ends up when he eventually leaves Germany.

"The Bundesliga has been a great platform", Pulisic said. It was how he did it that really struck a chord: the pace, the poise, the confidence to dance around his pursuers; 18-year-olds can get lost in cavernous stadiums such as these in front of huge television audiences but Sancho demanded you follow him.

They bid £11million for him in August 2016, but Dortmund said no. Tottenham enquired after Pulisic in 2017 while Chelsea and Manchester United have also been keen on the young United States worldwide who will likely soon be up for sale. "I call him every day and he's obviously saying we are kind of setting the trend for the young boys to come over". "When the time comes for me to talk in the breaks about my future, then that's when those things happen".
