Liverpool move for Christian Pulisic talked up

Liverpool move for Christian Pulisic talked up

Borussia Dortmund attacker Christian Pulisic is reportedly being targeted by Manchester United, who are ready to compete with arch-rivals Liverpool for the US international's signature in the summer transfer window.

"As you could tell by reading Pulisic's heartfelt piece in The Players Tribune, the 19-year-old U.S. men's player of the year wants desperately to win".

At Old Trafford, the Portuguese manager is building a team full of youngsters, who can go on to rule Europe in years to come. He is fast, has great technical and dribbling skills, and efficiently penetrates the opponent's defenses.

The Borussia Dortmund star has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League before with Jurgen Klopp said to be an admirer.

Christian Pulisic is a player Liverpool have tried to buy before [and] I'd be very surprised if they don't come in heavily for him next summer.

The German would be the ideal coach to teach Pulisic how to handle pressure.

He also finished third in goals during CONCACAF World Cup qualifying with seven, trailing only Guatemala's Carlos Ruiz (nine) and his United States' team-mate Jozy Altidore (eight).

The Independent report that Man Utd's owners are not prepared to let Pulisic, and all the marketing opportunities in the USA that will come with the youngster, slip through their grasp.

In January 2018, news broke that Premier League clubs Manchester United and Liverpool are preparing to make bids for Pulisic during the Summer 2018 transfer window.

Liverpool have been tipped to make a concerted effort to get Pulisic at the end of the season.

"It's a system that I'd never really experienced in the U.S".

Pulisic has played in all 16 games (14 starts) for Dortmund this season in the Bundesliga, scoring three goals and recording one assist. I think the start's been good, and we want to continue to learn his style. I don't care much about that. I played every day after school with all my friends from high school in Pennsylvania. But at a time when the sport in the country is tearing itself apart following the failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, with a presidential election being contested, this presents something of a paradox.
