Chelsea sign American winger Pulisic from Dortmund

Premier League outfit Chelsea have secured the service of Christian Pulisic after signing the American playmaker from Borussia Dortmund for a whopping 64 million euro, the Bundesliga leaders announced in a statement. However, Chelsea fans will have to wait until the summer to see the 20-year-old in Blue colors as he will spend the rest of the season on loan back at his former club.

“It has always been Christian’s big dream to play in Premier League. This certainly has something to do with his American origin and thus we were not able to prolong his contract. Because of this background and with his contract running down in 2020, we decided to accept Chelsea’s incredibly lucrative offer” Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc said.

 “We are delighted to have signed one of Europe’s most sought-after young players. Christian has shown his quality during a fantastic spell in Germany and at just 20, we believe he has the potential to become an important Chelsea player for many years to come. We look forward to welcoming him to Stamford Bridge in the summer and wish him and Dortmund every success for the remainder of the season” Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia said.
