Christian Mate Pulisic is an American professional football player who plays as an attacking midfielder or a winger for Chelsea and the United States national team.

Why Christian Pulisic rejected Manchester United to join Chelsea

The American made a £57.6million move to Stamford Bridge from Borussia Dortmund this summer, having agreed to join Frank Lampard’s team in January, and it’s hoped he can fill the void left by Eden Hazard’s departure to Real Madrid. When he was just seven years old, Pulisic spent a spell with non-League Brackley Town but he remained close with youth coach Robin Walker and invited him to Germany before he concluded a move to Chelsea.

And Walker has now revealed that Pulisic – who was a wanted man across Europe – was not interested in a move to United because of Mourinho, who has since been sacked, not being willing to give young players opportunities. I’m a Chelsea fan, I grew up in London supporting them,’ Walker told The Telegraph. ‘When I was in Dortmund last year, I told him that he had to come.
