Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic has admitted again that he is was a Manchester United fan as a child.
A photo has emerged on Twitter which shows his younger self wearing a United top and that has led many fans to speculate that this will give Jose Mourinho an advantage in the race to bring him to the Premier League.
And the American teenager has admitted that he “was” a “big fan” of the Old Trafford club – but pointed out that he remains a Dortmund player despite his admiration for the Premier League.
“Yeah, I was. I was definitely a big fan.” he told ESPN.

“Of course, right now I am under contract with Dortmund and I’m not looking around or doing anything like that so I’m very focused there.
“But, yeah, it’s cool to hear all this stuff! Of course, the Premier League is an unbelievable league.
“You never know in football what can happen, so right now, I’m focused with Dortmund, and yeah, that’s that.” he finished.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will hope that he can persuade the youngster that his future is best served at Anfield.
