    He's a good player and still very young but I don't think he will ever be the superstar his American PR team and fans want him to be.

    Another shrewd Chelsea business.

    How can they keep doing this? Abramovich is selling the club and all. how?

    Equally comfortable on either side.

    Sadly, at this rate, Chelsea and Arsenal will finish outside top 4 for years.

    I think this is a decent purchase from Chelsea. It looks expensive but that’s what players are going for now.

    Also like others have said, the kid has a high ceiling and good marketing opportunity.

    Jandon Sancho is already keeping him out of the team. They'll probably pick up some kid from Holland

    You mean outside of simply staying in Dortmund for a few more years and actually develop further? The boy is 20, not 27. He might think differently, but he has not outgrown us yet, not by a long shot.

    He transfers from a club that to a significant extent builds its strength from trust and patience in young players to a club that has shown time and time again to be ready to quickly cast away highly talented youngsters if they not hit the ground running there. In terms of club ideologies Dortmund and Chelsea are basically polar opposites.

    I can only hope for Pulisic that he is not supposed to be Eden Hazard´s replacement. That is a battle of expectations he will in all likelihood not win.

    Penetrating that emerging market. Hard.

    Don't see anything special in him tbh Decent but nothing to brag about and the fee being paid I would have thought he'd be Hazard level talent (at 20). He's only 20, so has lots of time to develop, but at Chelsea? Interesting choice.

    Most likeliest target is actually Gladbach´s Thorgan Hazard.

    Chelsea arent the brightest. Better deal for BvB than them. If Hazard goes and Odoi turns out the better player in the coming years, that will be fun

    Absurd decision to move to Chelsea of all clubs. Hopefully for him, he's spoken to Sarri at length about his plans.

    Plus they have loaned him back till the end of the season? I mean, I know its my first post, but thats some scary “lets secure his signature”’for a 20 y/o unproven premiere league player. I honestly only see the player and Dortmond laughing here.

    I really can't see Sarri being there long so it won't matter much.

    Yes, obviously outside of Dortmund. I thought it had been clear for a while he would leave?

    I agree by the way, he would’ve been better off staying for a little while longer.

    That’s a lot of money for someone who’s still very unproven.
