Bayern Munich wants USMNT Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund

Bayern Munich wants USMNT Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund

The Borussia Dortmund Star has admitted that he grew up as a "big fan" of Manchester United.

The USA worldwide has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United and Liverpool over the recent period.

Liverpool are expected to make a major effort to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic in the summer, but they won't find any potential move for the American to be straight-forward.

The 19-year-old midfielder has emerged as one of the top young talents in world football, with admiring glances being shot in his direction from across Europe.

Jurgen Klopp reportedly had an £11m bid for Pulisic turned down by Dortmund in the summer of 2016, but has continued to keep an eye on his progress, with Liverpool's scouting team known to be following his progress.

Asked to confirm that he was a supporter of United as a youngster, Pulisic replied: "Yeah, I was".

"Yeah, I was. I was definitely a big fan", he told ESPN. If you're going to Manchester United, you know you're not going to be on the ball almost as much as you are at Liverpool or Real Madrid'.

The duo have been handed a boost in their pursuit as Pulisic has now revealed he's a huge fan of the Premier League but it seems he may favour a move to Old Trafford if he does come to these shores.

So with that said, that leaves Manchester United, Liverpool, and Real Madrid, which no doubt presents an interesting dilemma for Pulisic.

"You never know in football what can happen, so right now, I'm focused with Dortmund, and yeah, that's that", he added.

After breaking into the first team at Dortmund this year, Pulisic has done nothing but impress scouts worldwide (damn shame we won't see him in the World Cup this year - talk about a coming out party).
