    Chelsea & Liverpool target Pulisic told it is 'time for a change'

    Christian Pulisic United States USMNT England 15112018

    Premier League interest is said to be building, with Goal having confirmed Chelsea’s interest, and former USMNT team star Lalas believes the time is right for a big-money move.

    He told Cowherd: “There are teams all over the world that would love to have Christian Pulisic right now.

    “I think he’s done a great job in going over to Germany, he’s done a great job at Borussia Dortmund.

    “But I think it’s time for a change right now for Christian Pulisic, and a change to an even higher profile team.”

    Lalas added of a man being charged with the task of helping America to recover from the disappointment of failing to reach the 2018 World Cup: “[Pulisic] is one of the phenoms in the world, he just happens to be American.

    “There’s going to be pressure to win, and to deliver. He’s a very young player so he’s still getting better.

    “He’s still physically growing, he’s growing as a soccer player. There’s a lot of pressure on his shoulders to lead us [USMNT] into the Promised Land.

    “But if you’re the man, you’re gonna take it and say: ‘Yeah, on my watch, we’re going to make sure we qualify for the next World Cup. I am going to lead this team by example’.”

    Pulisic’s current contract with Dortmund is only due to run until the summer of 2020, so they may be forced into a sale at some point.

    They can demand a hefty fee for his services at this stage, but the strength of their hand in talks will start to wane as terms run down.
