From Germany: Manchester United enter race to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United have entered the race to sign Borussia Dortmund and United States winger Christian Pulisic next summer, according to German media outlet Bild.

Jose Mourinho hotly pursued Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic during the summer of 2017 but to no avail.

The poor form of Alexis Sanchez, who reportedly wants to leave Old Trafford, and the potential departure of Juan Mata in the summer has made signing another wide player something of a priority.

And according to Bild, Man United are among several clubs positioning themselves to make a bid for Pulisic, who is valued at around £50m.

The American youngster made 42 appearances over the 2017/18 campaign but only has four starts to his name in all competitions this season, with former Manchester City youngster Jadon Sancho propelling to stardom through a series of dazzling performances out wide.

Pulisic will not be thinking about moving away just yet. He remains merely 20 and finds himself at a club which gives an excellent platform for young talent to perform.

That said, he will know joining a new club – and thereby starting the next chapter in his career – is an inevitability. United will certainly face stiff competition from other European suitors.
