  • Manchester United set to battle Liverpool for Christian Pulisic

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.

Pulisic has been on Liverpool's radar for more than a year, with head coach Jurgen Klopp hoping to lure the teenager from his former club.

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.

Borussia Dortmund's American star Christian Pulisic thinks his homeland can bounce back from the disappointment of missing the 2018 FIFA World Cup if they create a "real soccer nation" based on the Bundesliga's successful model.

"LeBron James has always been a big inspiration of mine", Pulisic said in an exclusive interview with ESPN's Raphael Honigstein at the Bundesliga side's winter training camp in Marbella. His six assists led all players in the competition, though his excellent qualifying run wasn't enough to push the USA into the 2018 World Cup, as the country disappointingly fell short for the first time since 1986.

Illinois to battle Iowa and the flu bug
Iowa shot 50 percent from the floor and hit 33 free throws in 40 chances compared to Illinois' 11 free throws in 14 chances. The Iowa and IL men's basketball programs both seek their first Big Ten victory this season in a pivotal game at 8 p.m.


"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". "I like to follow a lot of different teams and different players-I just really like the sport".

Pulisic captained the U.S. U-17 national team at the 2015 U17 World Cup in Chile, where he had a goal and an assist in three games.

"I've been right there, I see it every day; I literally went through the [German] system".

Liverpool are one of the suitors that have been in pursuit of Pulisic for a long time, and the Reds have now been joined by Manchester United in the race to sign him.

Jose Mourinho has been tipped to revamp his attacking options and Pulisic could be viewed as a potential replacement for Henrikh Mkhitaryan with the Armenian worldwide falling out of favour this season. "I'm a big fan-I just love to watch him and I obviously support wherever he is".
