Man United ready to beat Chelsea in £70m race for Bundesliga playmaker

According to the latest transfer news, are in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic ahead of Chelsea.

The 20-year-old is regarded as one of the top young prospects in the Bundesliga and is being monitored by several clubs across Europe. Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move, with reports claiming that the United States international is viewed as a potential replacement for Eden Hazard.

Liverpool are also said to be interested in a deal as Jurgen Klopp remains a huge admirer. But according to SportBild, Liverpool and Chelsea will face competition from United as they are considering a move next summer.

The report also claims that Chelsea want to sign Pulisic in the upcoming January window, but Dortmund are unwilling to allow the winger to leave midway through the campaign.

Pulisic will only have a year remaining on his contract at the end of the season and Dortmund will reportedly accept an offer of £70m.

The midfielder has also admitted he would be keen to move to the Premier League. ‘England, the Premier League, is a league where lots of kids dream of playing so there is no reason why maybe one day I won’t play here,’ Pulisic said earlier this month.
