Christian Pulisic on Wednesday became Premier League giants Chelsea’s third most expensive signing. The Blues paid £57.6 million to get the services of the 20-year-old attacking midfielder. Following his signing, Christian Pulisic blurted it is a “privilege” to sign for The Blues.

Pulisic arrived in Germany in February 2015 and has made a huge impression in Bundesliga since making his first team debut in January 2016.

Though Chelsea has roped in the services of the USA star, The Blues would loan him back to the Bundesliga leaders until the end of the season.


Following his switch to Premier League from Bundesliga, Christian Pulisic has penned down an emotional message to his Dortmund fans.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce that I will be entering my final months at (y)our world-famous Club,” wrote Pulisic, before adding, “It feels like only yesterday that I arrive in Dortmund as a raw, excited, very nervous but exceptionally proud 16-year-old from a small American town called Hershey.

“I had no idea what lay ahead but I soon discovered that as a young Schwarzgelben, I would be in the best possible hands.

“I would not be where I am today without the Club and their belief in giving young players a chance.

“It’s been an honour and a dream to pull on the black-and-yellow in front of the Sudtribune!

“Many, many memorable moments stand out – to have experienced all of them before my 20th birthday still feels, at times, like a dream.

“I would like to thank all those coaches who I have played under and who gave me these opportunities.

“And to my amazing teammates throughout the years: You took me in as a young boy, shared your experiences with me, helped me to develop and grow into a professional football. For this I sincerely thank you.

“To our unbelievable fans: It’s been a privilege to stand with you on the Sudtribune and to experience how you support your heroes.

“I feel honoured to have being able to make the trip from being supporters, to being supported.

“You have taken me in as one of your own. Thank you.

“I would also like to thank Mr Watzke and Mr Zorc.

“It was very important to me that I handles my situation in as fair and professional manner as possible towards the Club.

“So I thank them for finding a solution that was a win-win for everyone.

“In summer of 2019, I move on to Chelsea and 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.

“Looking forward to working with Maurizio Sarri and his technical team.

“But for the next six months, it’s all BVB!

“Please do not doubt my passion, determination and my 100% commitment to the team right until the last ball is kicked this season.

“We all feel that this is ‘our year’ and we are determined to achieve the best possible results in all competitions.

“Heja BVB!”
