Christian Pulisic wanted by Manchester United as they join Chelsea and Liverpool in race

MANCHESTER UNITED have joined their Premier League rivals in the race for Christian Pulisic, but they look to be the side most in need of a new forward.

The Borussia Dortmund player has struggled for starting time of late, thanks to Jadon Sancho's form, and has made it clear that he's open to the idea of moving to the top-flight of English football.

The 20-year-old is a versatile player and could help struggling Manchester United, but he won't be able to lend a hand this year.

While Dortmund are prepared to listen to offers for Pulisic, they won't release him until next summer as they want him for the remainder of the season.

A figure of £70million has been floated for the winger, which wouldn't be out of reach for any of the three clubs.

But, according to SportBild, it's United who have now blown the race wide open as they're the club most in need of some fresh blood.

Dortmund may be four points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table, but Pulisic has struggled to make a contribution this season.

The United States international  joined Dortmund as a 16-year-old in 2015 and has made 107 appearances for them, scoring 15 goals.

The £70 million asking price would only be worth it if the clubs saw more of his magic- while Chelsea may have to fill an Eden Hazard shaped hole, the transfer fee would smash their record, which stands at £65 million for Alvaro Morata.

The winger has been heavily linked with a move away from Germany, since suggesting that he'd be open to a move to the Premier League, which put several clubs on high alert.

Liverpool have been eyeing up the forward for some time, but already have a squad brimming with talent.
