Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that they have agreed a deal with Chelsea for attacking midfielder Christian Pulisic. Chelsea have lent Pulisic to Dortmund for the remainder of the season and then he will join The Blues in the summer on a transfer fee is €64 million. Pulisic will be the third most expensive player in Chelsea’s history behind goalie Kepa Arrizabalaga and striker Alvaro Morata.
Pulisic joined Dortmund’s youth team in 2015 before joining the senior team in 2016. So far, the American has played 115 matches for the BVB, scoring 15 goals and providing 24 assists.
This season, Pulisic has made 18 appearances for Dortmund so far, scoring three goals and providing 4 assists.
Borussia Dortmund legend and their current sporting director Michael Zorc said, “It was always Christian’s dream to play in the Premier League. That certainly has to do with his American background, and as a result we were unable to extend his contract. Against this background, we have decided to accept an extremely lucrative bid by Chelsea, given the low contract maturity. Christian Pulisic is a character perfect player. I am sure that in the coming months he will do everything in his power to bring his high quality to the team and to achieve his sporting goals with his team-mates at Borussia Dortmund. “
