Man Utd will reportedly be battling for Pulisic’s signature in the Summer with serious interest in the player from Liverpool.
After failing to sign Perisic last Summer from Inter Milan, United are still on the search for an out-and-out winger. There have been a few names Manchester United have been linked with so far this season; Malcom, Mahrez & Moura to name a few.
Pulisic has been another name that’s been bandied about recently with the 19 year old American being in fine form for both Dortmund and USA. This season he’s been a little quieter, but last season he made 13 assists from the wing.
Christian can play in a number of positions, having played on the Left Wing and Central Midfield in the past, however his primary position is on the Right Wing which is a position Man Utd are crying out for a specialist.
Liverpool are strongly rumoured to be interested in him, with Jurgen Klopp looking to make a move for his ex-youth player in the summer. Liverpool have had two bids rejected from Dortmund for Pulisic in 2006’s Summer transfer window. Man Utd are also interested and seem to hold the trump card, as Dortmund are interested in resigning Mkhitaryan who could be used as a make-weight in a potential deal.
Pulisic is also a self-confessed Man Utd fan; which is something the club have been largely missing as only a handful of players in the squad are currently playing for their boyhood club in Man Utd. It gives players that extra 10% during the difficult times as you play in front of the fans, with whom you were sat with watching your heroes as a child.
I’d love him at Man Utd and I think he’d be an exciting player both now, and as he develops. The question is, do we need another player who needs time to develop or do we need someone who is ready now? Who would you want to fill in the Right Wing problem?
