Christian Pulisic’s name is on the tips of every American soccer fan’s tongue since his meteoric rise with Borussia Dortmund. But not only is he at the forefront of our discussions, he’s also drawing praise and attention from all across the world.

Barcelona rumors are a dime a dozen in the soccer world, but it’s still interesting to see his name linked with such a prestigious club. Playing and performing well against clubs like Real Madrid and Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League will only help his profile and reputation around the world.

Pulisic has also drawn transfer interest from clubs like Liverpool, Stoke City, and RB Leipzig.

While it doesn’t appear as if the Pennsylvania native will be leaving Signal Iduna Park anytime soon, it does seem like if that moment does come there will be plenty of suitors ready to pay the price for him.

What do you think of this? Could we see an American in the Blaugrana any time soon?
