    Julian Brandt most likely. He would be my plan A though.

    Yep I wonder if there is a clause say £35mil or something.. 3 years is a weird contract extension length? Didn't he have 18 months left?

    He's quite young, and with lots of potential. Probably expecting to offer another contract next year

    Probably moved on much sooner than that. After Dortmund's reaction when we made our first approach, the frequency of games Pulisic played, and the media attention that followed it was always looking unlikely Dortmund would be wanting to sell.

    Given the club tried signing Draxler, and have been heavily linked with Brandt i think it is reasonable to believe the club have been following other leads.

    I think it's a fairly normal turn of events. I imagine that this season he has still been playing on his first pro contract, which will be peanuts compared to the players he is keeping out of the team, or even compared to someone like Dembele. It is normal to upgrade the contract of a kid who has made the sort of breakthrough he has made this season, and it neednt say anything about his future greater than a commitment to stay until the end of the season, but now on proper adult money.

    I watched Pulisic's video responding to fan mail. He sounds and looks far too satisfied to be leaving Dortmund. This one goes into the bookmark it and revisit in 2 years category.

    Massive generalisation that. What is there that makes American's risky players? Too much turkey at Thanks Giving? Trump?

    He is the American wonderboy because he is already one the best Dortmund players. IMO he will in a year or two be one of the best players in the league if he stays. World class talent. I would love it if we signed him and Dolberg. That would be fantastic.

    I
    Haha! I guess I'm hedging my bets after so many guys came to England and flopped. Freddie Adu, Jozy Altidore, oh and Carlos Bocanegra really got found out at Newcastle. This guy is supposed to be different. Strangely, aside from goal keepers, our guys don't do well abroad, but are able to form a solid national team.... The opposite of England really. It's strange.

    I'd take him too. It'd be great to have a player from home at Anfield.

    I don't think it is strange. US players almost always have great team mentality. If you don't listen to the manager/coach then you have no chance to make it as US player in the MLS. No time for egos even if you are a good player. In the PL then you can get away with it if you don't listen to the manager. You don't need to be a good team player in the PL and you will be protected by the media. They hunt down the manager instead.

    Interesting. German players tend to give up themselves for the team as well. The media in England obviously has an enormously negative impact. You can see the stress on the faces of the national team players every time they come out of the tunnel in a big tournament.

    Look at Chelsea for example. Mourinho got almost all the shit by the media. The players that didn't give a shit last season is now considered heroes. Even if the manager is a dickhead like Mourinho you don't do what they did last season. In the US the players would have got a lot more shit thrown at them by the media.

    This is true. In the NFL, NBA and MLB the players get called out. Mourinho is a wanker of galactic proportions. His hiring drove me to Liverpool, no kidding!!..... There I admitted it.... I feel better now.

    Are you saying you were a Chelsea fan who changed to support their rival because chelsea hired mourinho?

    Definitely a United fan migrated.... and spoke with such authority about us in his last few posts. Very surprising.

    Maybe he meant he was relatively new to football and he was looking for a team to support around that time?

    I'm half suspecting that when he/she says 'abroad' they're including England (in that it's abroad to them!).
