Chelsea Confirm £57.5m Signing of Christian Pulisic From Borussia Dortmund

Chelsea have confirmed a deal to sign Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund for a £57.5m fee. The USA international, who had been linked with both Liverpool and Arsenal, will remain on loan with the Bundesliga club until the end of the 2018-19 season.Dortmund have confirmed the move in a statement released on Wednesday morning having been unable to agree a new deal with the 20-year-old who will now complete a “dream” move to the Premier League. “It was always Christian’s dream to play in the Premier League. That certainly has to do with his American background, and as a result we were unable to extend his contract,” Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said. “Against this background, we have decided to accept an extremely lucrative bid by Chelsea, given the low contract maturity.” Pulisic will finish the season in Germany with Dortmund hoping to break Bayern Munich’s dominance of the German top flight this term. “Christian Pulisic is a character perfect player. I am sure that in the coming months he will do everything in his power to bring his high quality to the team and to achieve his sporting goals with his team-mates Borussia Dortmund.”Photo Credit: Getty
