Could Christian Pulisic be on the move? According to a report by Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl, Bayern Munich is interested in signing the 20-year-old American phenom from Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc has ruled out selling Pulisic in January, but the midfielder could very well be on the move in the summer.

Pulisic could help to replace Bayern’s 35-year-old Franck Ribery or 34-year-old Arjen Robben. Pulisic would be the second United States international to make a senior appearance for Germany’s most successful club, with Landon Donovan appearing 6 times for Bayern in 2009. Pulisic has 3 goals and 4 assists in 12 appearances this season for Dortmund. However, he has been in and out of the lineup, missing four games due to injury.

Chelsea is also rumored to be interested in acquiring Pulisic and could provide stiff competition for Bayern. If Pulisic were to leave Dortmund, he would certainly shatter the record fee for an American player, which currently stands at the $22 million Wolfsburg paid in 2017 for John Brooks. In any case, rumors about his future will certainly continue to swirl as the January transfer window approaches.
