Former United States footballer Brian McBride has urged Christian Pulisic to snub a potential move to Manchester United in the summer. The Borussia Dortmund attacker has previously admitted that he was a big childhood fan of the Red Devils, though he has dismissed the prospect of a Premier League switch.
In a report covered by M.E.N, McBride, who represented the United States on 90 occasions, advised Pulisic to decline a future move to the Red Devils and rather choose a club whose playing style is reminiscent to that of his current employers.
He said:“It all depends. Choosing for him a club that would help him develop his style and his skillset is going to be a necessity. When you talk about some of these bigger clubs, they don’t necessarily play the same type of soccer they play in Dortmund.”
Pulisic had been monitored by United earlier in the campaign, but a future move for his signature does not make some sense. Jose Mourinho has already clarified that the club won’t be looking for recruits further up the field, and this presumably ends any talk associated with Pulisic.
Unlike during the Louis van Gaal era, United are blessed with additional attacking options in the form of Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku whilst the likes of Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford have chipped in with valuable goals in recent seasons.
Pulisic has yet to showcase his full potential in the Bundesliga, and he will be better off sticking with Dortmund – as said in a recent interview – where he would earn the chance to establish himself as the leading playmaker before pursuing a big-club move.
