Man Utd to battle Liverpool for Bundesliga star

The transfer window is closed for the winter but reports continue to spread that Manchester United are preparing to do business for when it re-opens in the summer.

According to reports in Germany, we are preparing to do battle with Premier League rivals Liverpool over the potential signing of Christian Pulisic.

The Borussia Dortmund star has been linked with both teams in the past and the Merseyside club could be considered the favourites to sign the American international due to his relationship with Jurgen Klopp.

Pulisic worked with Klopp at Dortmund as a youngster but has since gone on to be one of the key players in their side over the past season or so.

However, German newspaper Bild (via MEN) are reporting that we are keen to land Christian Pulisic over the summer, despite bringing in fellow forward Alexis Sanchez in a swap deal from Arsenal last month.

Jose Mourinho currently has Sanchez, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata as options down the wing, though Pulisic could be the answer down the right as he predominately plays there in Germany.

Christian Pulisic is still only 19 years old and has made 19 appearances (17 starts) in the German Bundesliga this season, scoring three goals and recording two assists.  The youngster loves to run at defenders but his decision-making in the final third has come under question several times.

At his age and with his potential there is no doubt that Pulisic would be an excellent acquisition at Old Trafford if we were able to lure him away from Signal Iduna Park over the summer.
