Borussia Dortmund's American star Christian Pulisic thinks his homeland can bounce back from the disappointment of missing the 2018 FIFA World Cup if they create a "real soccer nation" based on the Bundesliga's successful model.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is seeking adequate reinforcement to strengthen his attack, and Pulisic is one of the players that caught his eye.
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. He is fast, has great technical and dribbling skills, and efficiently penetrates the opponent's defenses.
Playing for Dortmund, by contrast, has afforded him a welcome degree of normalcy, he revealed: "I've come into a bigger role with the national team in the US, but I think the environment I'm in here definitely helps".
The Premier League big boys feel Pulisic is the ideal signing in a commercial sense, as well as landing a world-class talent.
The report claims United "strongly challenge" Liverpool if they make a move for Pulisic in the summer. Even if that were to happen, however, Pulisic will still be burdened by being the outstanding talent of his generation, the man destined to smash through USA soccer's glass ceiling.
Liverpool have been tipped to make a concerted effort to get Pulisic at the end of the season.
"I would say that the expectations some Americans put on me is too much".
Pulisic's development showed past year in global competition, in which he led the U.S. men's national team with six goals and four assists in nine games started. The 19-year-old has already won a regular place in Dortmund's first team, scoring three goals and adding an assist in 16 appearances in Bundesliga play this season. 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.
Pulisic has, however, tried to overcome the crushing disappointment of failure to qualify for Russian Federation 2018 by concentrating on his club performances with Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. "I try to focus on the next week and the next game every time, focus on what I'm doing right now and just to continue to improve every single day".
