Here’s a tweet:
BILD is relatively reliable, but still, the soccer rumor churn is full of half-reported scraps and insane speculation, so who knows whether or not this is a likely or even possible outcome. But it does raise an interesting question: How quickly should Christian Pulisic, the wonderteen, push for first team minutes at the possible expense of slow, deliberate development?
Pulisic is 17 years old, he made 12 first appearances, and scored two goals last season in his debut campaign with Borussia Dortmund’s first team. He’s somewhere between a No. 10 and an out-and-out winger, and coach Thomas Tuchel clearly trusts him. He slid seamlessly into the Dortmund attack when called upon and scored some well-worked goals.
