Christian Pulisic Prepared To Emulate Eden Hazard At Chelsea

23 May 2019

New Chelsea signing Christian Pulisic has said he wants to fill the void left by Eden Hazard should the Belgian leave for Real Madrid this summer.

Speaking on his switch, Eden Hazard's younger brother believes this was the ideal time for him to make the move.

Borussia Dortmund have signed Belgium worldwide Thorgan Hazard from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Monchengladbach.

He has now arrived at Stamford Bridge after returning to Dortmund on loan. "And the Premier League was what I was able to watch growing up in the USA, and it is always where I wanted to be".

Brandt's signing has now rounded off a very busy week for Dortmund, and there could yet be more activity before the summer transfer window slams shut.

"Initially, I was a little bit confused and wondered why my family was going to England", he told BBC Sport.

"It is definitely a goal. I want to come in and be my own player, and do the best that I can do". Pulisic, meanwhile, scored on the final day of the Bundesliga campaign to take his season tally to four, although the forward was hit by injuries during the year.

'One of the main reasons for my change is that Dortmund narrowly missed the title last season, so there is room for improvement and I am very excited about the boys. The Belgium worldwide said after Chelsea's final Premier League game of 2018-19 that he had made a decision and informed the club. I am a person who sometimes decides things from the gut and for whom a good feeling is important. I had the chance to play on both at Dortmund but I have experience of playing as a number 10 with the national team as well. "It is a blessing to be in this position, so I can inspire American kids, to show them we can do it too".

The fact that Christian Pulisic made a decision to join Chelsea for a reported 64 million euros instead of joining rivals Bayern may be the first sign of this new ruling.
