Borrusia Dortmund have confirmed that Christian Pulisic has joined Chelsea in a £58m deal. The USA International will move to the Stamford Bridge in the summer after an agreement to stay with Dortmund until the end of the season.
MySportDab report Pulisic’s contract in Dortmund was due to expire in the summer, although the club would have been entitled to a hefty compensation package.
However, the Blues have swooped to secure the forward’s services. Borrusia Dortmund 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 Borussia Dortmund.”
In a statementon the club’s website on Wednesday morning, Dortmund wrote:
“Borussia Dortmund has agreed with the English Premier League club Chelsea on a transfer of the Dortmund offensive player Christian Pulisic with immediate effect. The British in turn lend the player until the end of the current season to BVB.”
