Discussing his pride at the switch, Pulisic told the Blues’ official website: “In [the] summer I move on to Chelsea and to a new competition, the English Premier League.

“It’s a privilege to have signed for such a legendary club and I look forward to working hard towards being a contributor to their team of world-class players.”

Borussia Dortmund statement

Pulisic has excelled this season with his form in both the Bundesliga and Champions League enough to convince the west-London club to part with a vast sum of money for a player whose contract expires next summer.

“It was always Christian’s dream to play in the Premier League,” said Dortmund director Michael Zorc.

“That certainly has to do with his American background, and as a result we were unable to extend his contract.

How the internet reacted to Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic signing:

It is widely reported Liverpool dropped their interest in Pulisic some time ago. Yet, the frequent transfer stories over the years regarding a player signed by Dortmund while Jurgen Klopp was in charge meant Chelsea’s announcement drew reaction among the Reds’ fanbase.

There was much concern over what the development could mean for up-and-coming youth star Callum Hudson-Odoi, whose current deal expires next summer.

Although some feel there is room for both Pulisic and Hudson-Odoi at Chelsea.

Dortmund fans, it seems, were not too devastated…
