Chelsea make €50m+ Pulisic bid as Dortmund await rival offers – sources

ESPN

Chelsea have submitted a bid "north of €50 million" ($57m) to sign Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund next summer, sources have told ESPN FC.

Bundesliga leaders Dortmund have ruled out selling the U.S. attacking midfielder in the January transfer window, but he will be allowed to leave the club in six months' time subject to an acceptable transfer fee.

Pulisic has assured the club he will not run down his existing contract, which expires in 2020, but Dortmund are aware he has his heart set on leaving Germany.

Chelsea are in pole position to win the race for the 20-year-old's signature with rival bids from the Premier League yet to emerge from Manchester United, Arsenal or Liverpool, and Dortmund are in no rush to conclude the deal in case counteroffers arrive.
