Manchester United preparing to hijack any Liverpool bid for Christian Pulisic

Manchester United preparing to hijack any Liverpool bid for Christian Pulisic

The report claims United "strongly challenge" Liverpool if they make a move for Pulisic in the summer.

United are not only interested in Pulisic's effectiveness on the pitch, but also off it. Despite Pulisic's production, which earned him US Male Player of the Year honors, the US failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986. The rise of America's best player to date coinciding with US Soccer's existential crisis doesn't quite fit.

"I am playing every week in the Bundesliga, in the Champions League, against top teams", he says.

As he breaks away from a gaggle of Borussia Dortmund players flooding out of a post-dinner team meeting, Christian Pulisic looks nearly a little embarrassed by the prospect of being put under the spotlight. I was always the smallest one but I did my best.

Will the same make her the victor of Bigg Boss 11? While Shilpa supported Vikas, Puneesh had a totally different point of view. Vikas asked Shilpa Shinde to either jump in the pool which she hates or press the buzzer to exit from the task.

United chiefs are big fans of the 19-year-old and believe he could be a big success both on and off the pitch for the club, similar to Paul Pogba.

Pulisic has been on Liverpool's radar for more than a year, with head coach Jurgen Klopp hoping to lure the teenager from his former club. "I like to follow a lot of different teams and different players-I just really like the sport". He just has one or two touches and wouldn't be right.

"I would say that the expectations some Americans put on me is too much", he said. I played every day after school with all my friends from high school in Pennsylvania. With a number of targets in the hat - namely Ivan Perisic, Gareth Bale and Malcom - the Premier League giants have made a decision to add another to the list - Christian Pulisic. But [the winter break] has given us good time in the training camp to learn some things and see how we want to play and figure things out.

Considered to be the first United States-born player with the true potential to be a worldwide soccer star, Pulisic's marketing value is undeniable, which is a major reason he is such a tantalizing prospect, as football clubs around the world see him as a way to tap into the largely untapped American soccer market. Anyone following the global scene is following Pulisic, so he would bring in a massive USA crowd for whichever team gets him.
