Borussia Dortmund has to do is starting the new season without Christian Pulisic. The autumn Champions of Bundesliga side announced that the offensive player will move in the summer to FC Chelsea in the English Premier League. The transfer fee is around 64 million Euro. The Transfer will take place with immediate effect, however, the 20-Year-old is on loan until the end of the season to the BVB, a rental fee shall not be due and payable.

“It has always been Christian’s dream to play in the Premier League. This certainly has something to do with its American origins, and as a result it was not possible for us to extend his contract”, BVB-quotes-BVB sporting Director Michael Zorc on the Club site: “Against this Backdrop, we have decided – in view of the small contract remaining term to maturity – extremely lucrative offer for the Chelsea now.” The Treaty of Pulisic would be run in the summer of 2020.

Pulisic is considered to be one of the greatest talents in football. For the current leaders of the Bundesliga, an American, arrived for 2015 in 81 Bundesliga games (ten goals, 16 assists).

In the current season, it runs for Pulisic is still not perfect – after injury problems at the start of the season, the right came outside only rarely in the reserve role, so far he was only in five League games in the starting lineup. Last positions at BVB were on the offensive outside Jadon Sancho and Raphael Guerreiro preference, both have taken this season, an impressive development.

Pulisic is the third most expensive finish in the Bundesliga history. Even more expensive, only Kevin De Bruyne, with 76 million Euro transfer fee (from VfL Wolfsburg to Manchester City) and Ousmane Dembélé, who left Borussia Dortmund two years ago for 115 million euros for FC Barcelona.
