Christian Pulisic will start his pre-season off with a bang. The 17-year-old U.S. international was named to Borussia Dortmund's pre-season tour of Asia that will see the Bundesliga runner-ups take on Manchester United and Manchester City in the International Champions Cup tournament.

Pulisic has returned to training after getting some rest after the Copa America.

Dortmund have undergone quite the roster transformation this season, losing the likes of Ilkay Gundogan and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. They've been heavily linked to Andre Schurrle and Mario Gotze as replacements and have already brought in talented youngsters Ousmane Dembele and Emre Mor.

It looks to be a hard fight for playing time again this season for the American. However, that's to be expected at a club of this level.

Dortmund will kick off their tour with a friendly against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United on Friday and then take on Manchester City next Thursday.

The squad for the trip to China:

1 Weidenfeller, 38 Bürki, 39 Bonmann - 2 Hober, 3 Park, 5 Bartra, 6 Bender, 7 Dembélé 8 Sahin, 9 Mor, 14 Leitner, 17 Aubameyang, 18 Rode, 20 Ramos, 21 Larsen, 22 Pulišić, 23 Kagawa, 24 Merino, 25 Sokratis, 27 Castro, 29 Schmelzer, 30 Passlack, 32 Burnic, 37 Durm
