Christian Pulisic, an attacking midfielder and winger for Bundesliga giant Borussia Dortmund and star player for the United States men's national soccer team, is now one of the most sought-after soccer prospects in the world.

However, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho also likes the player very much, and he would reportedly do anything in his power to beat Liverpool in this race.

The biggest obstacle standing in the way of a transfer is the importance Pulisic places on playing time, which he's gradually earned with Dortmund since joining the first team in January 2016.

Pulisic has 11 goals and 14 assists in 78 career appearances for Dortmund, but Honigstein believes the young attacker isn't quite ready to be a like-for-like replacement for Philippe Coutinho. He has also started four of five games in the Champions League.

"As you could tell by reading Pulisic's heartfelt piece in The Players Tribune, the 19-year-old United States men's player of the year wants desperately to win".

Following the vote, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu released a statement saying the budget is "excellent". Deals for gas and oil cooperation, cyber security and agricultural projects are on the agenda.

"I also like my hometown team, the 76ers", he said. "Just being a good team player with this team, just being a piece of the puzzle is really important for me". "How they grow their youth players into full professionals... you're fighting really for a pro contract even better and I think if we continue to do that then of course players will come up and there will be new talents and new things going on", he explained.

Pulisic is already one of the biggest American footballers and United reckon a move for him would bring them commercial success in the States.

USA national team midfielder Christian Pulisic has hailed NBA star LeBron James, saying the Cleveland Cavaliers forward has always been a "big inspiration".

"I was a big Manchester United fan when I was younger, so I loved to watch Wayne Rooney", he told ESPN in 2016, referring to the former United star.

In that vein United see him as another Paul Pogba. "If anything, it's given me a bigger platform to just focus on at club level and do what I can here, without that in my brain".
