OFFICIAL: Chelsea Signs Pulisic From Dortmund

Dortmund have confirmed the sale of Christian Pulisic to Chelsea in a €64 million deal that will see the American loaned back to the Bundesliga side for the remainder of the 2018/2019 season.

The 20-year-old forward who was linked with Premier league sides Liverpool and Arsenal joined Dortmund in 2015.

“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,” BVB sporting director Michael Zorc told the club’s official website.

“Against this background, we have decided to accept an extremely lucrative bid by Chelsea, given the low contract maturity.”

Pulisic’s contract was due to expire in June 2020.
