Real Madrid have been given a boost in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund and USA winger Christian Pulisic, after the player informed the club that he’s willing to seal a summer switch to the Spanish giants.
This is according to Don Balon, who note that the 19-year-old has Real down as his first choice destination this summer, and that Dortmund value the player at around €70M.
The report also notes that the player is a target for the Madrid-based side, and that he won’t say no if Real come calling for his signature.
Pulisic would be a very exciting signing for both Real and their fans, as the winger has proven to be one of the Bundesliga’s most exciting prospects these past few years.
Since coming throughs the ranks with the German giants, Pulisic has gone on to make a total of 97 first team appearances for the club, scoring 12 and assisting 20 in that time.
The player’s lightning-quick pace and fantastic dribbling ability has seen some label him as one of the most exciting young stars in Europe, and rightly so.
With Real losing Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus this summer, they are in need of a replacement, something Pulisic could definitely prove to be a few years down the line.
Although €70M for a teenager seems like a lot, it may prove to be a bargain in the future should Pulisic end up fulfilling his potential.
