Liverpool and Manchester United to battle for Christian Pulisic in big money transfer

0

He’s been on Liverpool’s radar since Jurgen Klopp walked into the club.

But could the Reds now be facing some serious competition for Christian Pulisic?

The Independent report that Manchester United are ready to make a big-money move this summer, if Liverpool bid for the Borussia Dortmund star.

Klopp tried to land Pulisic in 2016 but was unable to agree a deal, and the 19-year-old has continued his emergence as one of Europe’s brightest young talents since.

Liverpool have monitored his progress closely, and would be keen if there was any chance Dortmund looked to sell.

Pulisic’s status as the golden boy of the US national team is said to be a big factor behind Manchester United’s interest, with the attacking midfielder viewed as a dream signing in terms of marketing potential.

The report also suggests United could look to use Henrikh Mkhitaryan as a potential makeweight in any deal, and says Jose Mourinho has interest in another Dortmund star, Julian Weigl.
