Times journalist Duncan Castles has revealed that Bayern Munich are leading the race to sign Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund. The United States international has been regularly linked with a move away from Dortmund and the speculation has only intensified after his standing out for the club during their recent United States tour.
With just 24 hours left before the English transfer deadline, neither Liverpool nor Chelsea seem interested in the United States footballer and Bayern could now have a clear route to his services. Nevertheless, the German champions may have plenty of convincing to do to lure the teenager, given he has previously admitted that he is not fascinated by the switch to the German champions.
Pulisic has transformed his game over the past couple of seasons in the Bundesliga and he is now regarded as a regular for club and country. Despite this, the speculation continues to surround his future with Dortmund struggling to compete for regular honours over the past six seasons. Barring the DFB-Pokal Cup, the German outfit have struggled to come anywhere close to competing with Bayern, who have managed to maintain their dominance with some shrewd signings every summer.
