Pulisic ‘thankful’ to Dortmund but feels it’s the ‘right time’ to join Chelsea

Christian Pulisic has thanked Borussia Dortmund for the time he has spent with the German club, but he feels the time was right for him to join Chelsea.

Chelsea moved quickly to secure the £57 million signing of the highly-rated 20-year-old when the January transfer market opened, although he has been loaned back to Dortmund until the end of the season before moving to Stamford Bridge next summer.

USA international Pulisic moved to Dortmund as a 15-year-old and while he is grateful for the role the Bundesliga club has played in his development, he admits that moving to the Premier League has been a life long dream of his.

“I’ve had an amazing five years in Germany. It has been incredible and I am so thankful for that.’’ Pulisic told Sky Sports.

“But it has been a dream of mine (to play in England) and I am really excited for this move. I just feel it was the right time for me.”
