In Focus: Pulisic potential is worth investing in this summer

As reported by The Telegraph, Manchester United are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund talent Christian Pulisic this summer.

What’s the story?

While most of the transfer headlines this January are being generated by deals set to be concluded this month, the biggest clubs in the world always plan ahead and Manchester United are no different.

The Telegraph say that the Red Devils are ready to compete with Liverpool for USA international Christian Pulisic this summer.

The paper reckon that the teenager’s talent and commercial value make him an attractive proposition to United and they don’t want him in the hands of their arch Premier League rivals.

Is he the right kind of player Jose Mourinho should be moving for at the end of the season?

Potential superstar

Rated at £40.5m by Transfermarkt and with his contract at the Bundesliga side not running out until 2020, any move for Pulisic would not be cheap, but the rewards could be great given his age, nationality and potential.

With growing interest in football in the USA, he could become one of the first true superstars to emerge from the country, making him a hugely attractive proposition for commercial savvy clubs.

On the pitch he’s showing plenty of progress too, becoming a regular for Borussia Dortmund over the last couple of the seasons, scoring 11 and assisting 14 in 78 appearances.

While not the most impressive return in comparison to the elite around Europe, he still just 19, learning the game and can find consistency in time.

Investing in his future early is a valid strategy and it’ll be interesting to see whether Manchester United follow up their reported interest this summer.
