Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic: I don’t want to join Bayern Munich

Borussia Dortmund winger Christian Pulisic has revealed that he doesn’t want to join Bayern Munich.

Several players have made the switch from Dortmund to Bayern in recent years – including Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels and Mario Gotze, with the latter subsequently returning – but Pulisic isn’t set to follow suit.

The teenage sensation told Penn Live: “No, that I could not do. I can’t say that, but nah.”

In addition, Pulisic stated that he isn’t interested in a move to the Premier League, despite being widely reported as a target for Liverpool over the past year.

He said: “When I was little I wanted to play in the Premier League but now that I’m in the Bundesliga I’m not planning on a move because that’s what I want to.

“I’m really happy there and I’m just kind of going with the flow and I’m happy with it.”

An extremely talented young player, Pulisic is already an important player for the United States at senior level despite being just 18 years old.

Pulisic has scored seven goals in 16 games for the United States having previously boasted a superb goalscoring record for his country at youth level.

The starlet has made a major impact for Dortmund, too – he created 26 chances in the Bundesliga last season and provided six assists.

Dortmund finished third in the Bundesliga last season and will be determined to fare better next campaign after they ended up 18 points behind champions Bayern Munich.

Christian Pulisic had a pass accuracy of 73% in the Bundesliga last season.
