Our resident Manchester City fans have been delighted to hear that they are set to compete with league rivals Liverpool for Christian Pulisic, if a report in The Daily Mail is to believed.
The 17-year-old became the youngest ever player in Bundesliga to score two goals after his goal effort against Stuttgart at the weekend.
The young American, who became the youngest player to represent the USA after making his international debut back in March, is one of the brightest talents in Germany, plying his trade for Borussia Dortmund.
Word around the MLS experts here in the Tavern has indicated that his performances have been noted by Claudio Reynar, the sporting director at Manchester City’s sister club New York City’s.
City are now believed to hold a genuine interest in the forward, who has also attracted interest from their Champions League semi-final opponents Real Madrid have.
Pulisic has made 12 appearances this term at Dortmund, with City keen for him to follow in the footsteps of Ilkay Gundogan, who is also expected to move from Dortmund to City this summer.
However, our bar staff think that former Dortmund coach Jürgen Klopp would like the youngster to follow him from Westfalenstadion to Anfield.
