Borussia Dortmund place huge summer price tag on United States of America star Pulisic

Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic has admitted that he was a big Manchester United fan growing up, adding that the Premier League was an "unbelievable" place to play football.

With names like Isco being bandied about fancifully by fans (myself included), a pricey but realistic option is Borussia Dortmund's Pulisic.

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.

Then again, he didn't cost the club €100 million (£88m), the price being quoted by German broadcasters Sport1 as the value Dortmund have slapped on Pulisic's head.

The 19-year-old is in high demand with Liverpool, United and Bayern Munich all tracking the player, whose deal expires in 2020.

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.

Jurgen Klopp is said to be a big fan of the winger and getting an American player will obviously be great for marketing the club in the United States of America, but spending such a large fee on a teenager does seem somewhat risky.

"But what I think you guys really don't know is just how nice of a character he is and how much he cares and how hard he works".

Jose Mourinho is expected to further strengthen his squad this summer as he looks to build a side capable of challenging Man City and Pulisic would be an excellent signing if they could pull it off. I've talked to him.
