Christian Pulisic scored twice and assisted on one goal in a victory over France on 2 September 2016, clinching him the honours of being the youngest player to achieve a goal in a World Cup qualifying game for the U.S., as well as the youngest player in U.S. men’s football history to score a brace (two goals in one match). Pulisic has also continued to set a new standard for American players at the club level, becoming the first U.S.MNT player to appear in and win a UEFA Champions League game, as Chelsea, the powerhouse of the English Premier League, defeated Manchester City, 1-0, in Porto.
On January 2, 2019, Christian Pulisic’s move to the English Premier League was made official when an English Premier League club announced they had reached a $ 73 million deal to pay Dortmund for Pulisic, a record amount for an American player. He began playing with the club during the 2019-20 season. SOme of the U.S. Football players in the top five European leagues include Christian Pulisic (Chelsea), Giovani Reyna (Borussia Dortmund), Sergino Destro (Barcelona), Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig), John Brooks (VfL Wolfsburg), Tim Weah (Lile), Weston McKennie (Juventus) and others. Claudio Reyna, Landon Donovan, and Clint Dempsey are among the best U.S. Football players in the United States. Still, none of them compares with Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic.
If Chelsea gave any hint that Christian Pulisic would be available during the summer, Newcastle United would look into signing him. The Magpies are in urgent need of attacking reinforcements after a summer that was unsatisfactory on that front. Newcastle hasn’t precisely gotten its way when pursuing forward talents, with Hugo Ekitike choosing to join Paris Saint-Germain and Moussa Diaby being beyond of reach. Between now and the conclusion of the window, Eddie Howe and Dan Ashworth will have a long list of names on their wish list and may even try to buy some unproven Premier League players.
The 23-year-old Pulisic signed with Chelsea in the summer of 2019 after showing tremendous promise with Borussia Dortmund. Although Pulisic has shown moments of talent, they have been too infrequent so far. One hundred fifteen matches and 25 goals and 18 assists isn’t a bad record by any means, but Pulisic only started 13 Premier League matches last year. The American played only 25 minutes as a substitute in the season’s first match against Everton while also jumping on the bench. Although Jurgen Klopp has praised Pulisic as a “big talent” and “super-exciting,” Chelsea hasn’t consistently witnessed such qualities. The best course of action would be to hold on to Pulisic even if Chelsea decides to sign a new wide player because of the number of probable departures and Sterling’s likely need for some time to adjust.
