Christian Pulisic excited making Chelsea move

Christian Pulisic excited making Chelsea move

That's according to former Tottenham midfielder and BBC Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas.

Zorc also revealed that the US international's £57 million to Stamford Bridge had been in the making for quite some time.

Pulisic is one of the hottest prospects in Europe and has shone for the German club despite losing his starting place to England worldwide Jadon Sancho this season.

The 20-year-old completed a £58m move to Chelsea this week but will remain on loan with Bundesliga leaders Dortmund until the end of the season.

Chelsea will pay Dortmund €64 million ($73.1 million / £58 million) for the United States global - far eclipsing the former record for an American player, which stood at €20 million when Wolfsburg signed defender John Brooks in 2017.

Match of the Day presenter Dan Walker read the media concerns about Pulisic to Jenas on last night's show.

"I think that's harsh", he said. And although Christian Pulisic was reduced to a bit part role due to the emergence of Jadon Sancho and Jacob Bruun Larsen, he is ready to fight for his position and help the team in the second half of the campaign.

Chelsea boasting a host of established stars such as Eden Hazard as well as talented youngsters including Callum Hudson-Odoi.

In that case, a company called Structured Asset Sales, which owns a third of the Ed Townsend estate, is suing for $100 million. Stanton added that Sheeran didn't exactly do himself a favour by performing a handy mashup of both songs in Zurich in 2014 .

"So why are they spending all this money on somebody new to come in?"

'We took a collective decision with Christian's family and his agent that we would transfer him in the summer of 2019 if he didn't want to extend his contract with us.

The 18-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch to Bayern Munich and could move to Germany later this month.

U.S. global Pulisic moved to Dortmund as a 15-year-old and while he is grateful for the role the Bundesliga club has played in his development, he admits that moving to the Premier League has been a life long dream of his.

Speaking at Dortmund's mid-season training camp in Marbella, he told reporters: "I've always wanted to play in the Premier League and I'm looking forward to it".

"The club asked my opinion about him about one month ago".

"Today I have known that the deal is done but I didn't know anything".
