Christian Pulisic gives Manchester United hope of transfer after discussion with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic claims he’s spoken to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang about a move to England.
Pulisic admitted he supported United as a child and insisted that he’s flattered with the recent speculation linking him with a transfer move to Old Trafford.
The United States international also revealed that he keeps in touch with Aubameyang and could be the next Dortmund player to follow the striker to the Premier League.
Asked whether he’s discussed a move to England with Aubameyang, Pulisic told ESPN: ‘Of course. You know… I’ve talked to him.
‘Of course, the Premier League is an unbelievable league and you never know in football what can happen so right now I’m focused with Dortmund.’
Asked to confirm his support of United as a youngster, Pulisic replied: ‘Yeah, I was. I was definitely a big fan.
‘Of course right now I am under contract with Dortmund I’m not looking around or doing anything like that so I’m very focused there.
‘But, yeah, it’s cool to hear all this stuff!’
Pulisic was pictured with Aubameyang at a Nike event in London on Wednesday night and believes Arsenal signed a brilliant ‘character’ last month.
‘I think you guys know what type of guy he is,’ the American said.
‘He shows that. But, what I think you guys really don’t know is just how nice of a character he is and how much he cares and how hard he works.
‘I mean, he brought me along so much as a player and helped me and guided me, and he’s been such a great guy.
‘Obviously, we’re sad to lose him, but I’m excited to see what he does.’
