The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern want to see another big name come to Old Trafford this summer. In recent years, big names like Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba have moved to Manchester, signalling a period of progression for the club.
Jose Mourinho, then, will likely be keen to repeat that feat again this summer, and according to the Independent, there is at least a chance of that happening.
The Independent report that Man Utd have identified Borussia Dortmund attacker Christian Pulisic as a ‘big target’ for the club, with the club recognising the importance of his name both on the pitch and off of it. Significantly, though, a move is apparently only likely to happen this summer if Liverpool move for him – with the Reds also said to keen.
Clearly, then, Man Utd have identified Pulisic as the perfect player to move to Old Trafford, but are hesitant to move as he is developing so well in Germany. However, if Liverpool move for him, they may have little choice but to accelerate their interest ahead of time.
One would assume the main concern for Man Utd would be that he might not start straight away, and whilst that is a valid note, it’s a tough one to believe. The American has emerged as one of Europe’s most exciting talents, delivering fantastic dribbling, passing and technique. He’s already equalled his goalscoring tally from last year this term, and so the American is on course for a career-best season in Germany.
For Man Utd, then, a move makes sense. Sure, he might not be an immediate starter, but there is no doubting that he has the quality to do a job for the club, and if it means preventing Liverpool from landing him, it’s a move that makes sense.
Rated at £40.5 million by Transfer Markt, it’s fair to say that Pulisic would require significant investment on Man Utd’s part, but he’d be worth every penny.
The American, like Anthony Martial when he moved to Old Trafford, is arguably one of the best young attackers on the planet, and he’d be a fantastic asset for the Red Devils.
Mourinho is steadily building a team for the future, and at 19-years-old, Pulisic be a great addition.
