Pulisic, 19, is firmly admired by Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool's American owners are also believed to be fans of the Borussia Dortmund man and all the marketing opportunities that would come with the Pennsylvania-born star.

A particularly interesting factor in any potential transfer for Pulisic is his marketability. His six assists led all players in the competition, though his excellent qualifying run wasn't enough to push the USA into the 2018 World Cup, as the country disappointingly fell short for the first time since 1986.

Pulisic's own rise in the sport has been meteoric, and at the tender age of 19 he is already widely regarded as the USMNT's best player.

Playing for Dortmund, by contrast, has afforded him a welcome degree of normalcy, he revealed: "I've come into a bigger role with the national team in the US, but I think the environment I'm in here definitely helps".

Former Dortmund boss Klopp piled praise on Pulisic in February 2015, when the attacker was coming through the ranks at the Bundesliga club and it's thought the player remains in his thinking.

At Old Trafford, the Portuguese manager is building a team full of youngsters, who can go on to rule Europe in years to come. Pulisic scored his third goal of the season to complete the move and secure Dortmund's second consecutive win under new coach Stoger, who was brought in to relieve Peter Bosz.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews Joked About Drugging Hillary Clinton
MSNBC recently admitted that Matthews had settled with a former producer who accused him of sexual harassment . Cosby , it should be noted, has been accused of drugging women before allegedly assaulting them.

"We plan ahead with Christian Pulisic". "They weren't really soccer players, so we would play basketball all the time". I think the start's been good, and we want to continue to learn his style.

"I would say that the expectations some Americans put on me is too much", he said.

It is not often that Manchester United fail to sign their top transfer target but over the last couple of seasons, the Red Devils have not been the same kind of super-power in the transfer market, that they once used to be.

"When you do that every week, you are going to improve".

Though Pulisic downplayed the need for a complete overhaul of U.S. Soccer in this interview, he again emphasized how the environment of the youth system in Germany has helped him develop as a player.
