    Pulisic is reportedly on the short list of options of wingers for the January transfer window along with: Malcom, Lemar and Kluivert. Pulisic is a top talent, but I just can't see any reason why Dortmund would sell him mid season. Although, his contract only runs till 2020, so if he doesn't sign a new contract, he may be on the move in the summer.

    Here's an article linking him to us: https://uk.sports.yahoo.com/news/ex...ansfer-window-recruitment-list-195109341.html

    No chance in Jan, proper chance in the summer though. He's a self-proclaimed United fan, would appeal to the American fanbase and he's a top prospect. I think it'll be Malcom in Jan though.

    I'd wait until the summer for him rather than buy Malcom.

    I’d sign them all. Replace Mkhitaryan and Mata and add one as depth.

    I do not think he leaves Dortmund until summer 2019.

    It makes so much sense in footballing and, yes, marketing terms. Would love to see this happen.

    I'd take signing either pulisic or kluivert as a firm indication that Mourinho is going to leave next season.
    I would be quite surprised that these signings are selected by Mou, who usually prefers finished and polished products rather than youngsters at attacking positions.

    I think it will be Woodward's signings for market commercial reasons, not Mourinho.

    Maybe Mourinho is gonna build a team for the long term and signing Pulisic and Kluivert would indicate his commitment to United beyond his current contract.

    You could argue the only signings he made who were the finished article was Mkhi and Matic. Everyone else he signed is still young and will continue to improve.

    That would be a SAF vintage signing
    Talented young winger predestinated number 7

    Excellent player, good marketing prospect but BVB are not going to let him go easily after Dembele, and he is going to cost upwards of a 100 mills.

    There is no evidence for this assertion sadly. Nothing he has done in his 1.5 year stay gives any indication that he is here for the long term. Primarily take his reluctance to shift with his family to Manchester which shows he doesn't see himself long term here.

    I don't think he is currently worth that much. We should wait 1 more year to assert the fact whether he is worth spending that much on.

    Our scouting needs to start earning those paychecks and unearth these type of potentially world class players before they get to the bigger European teams, so we don't have to pay north of 40-50 million pounds for them.

    It's what made us so unpredictable and scary during the times of Sir Alex, who always had an ace up his sleeve that would surprise our rivals and give us the needed advantage over them. The moment he felt we were getting stale in attack, a young attacking player was signed in order to try and give a breath of fresh air.

    Mourinho has been completed humbled by Pep this season. Typical Mourinho would have had a meltdown by now. But all we are seeing is a calm Mourinho. I think he will atleast stay until we win the league once. After that I can't really say.

    The signings of a 23yr old Pogba for a World record fee and Victor Lindelof are two examples of his commitment to United for the long haul.

    His wife and kids are very settled in London and it would be foolish to uproot them and move them up north.

    Some people think they know exactly how Jose will act given his history in certain jobs. Not taking into account he may well choose to be different, he's a clever bloke, not a dumb animal.
    Jose seems happy at United, though not entirely happy with his squad. The majority of the players seem to be happy with him, yet an element of our fans haven't backed him since day one. I'm looking forward to the new players he's after in January, hopefully they can have an immediate effect on the squad.
    I do worry that Pulisic would be a tad lightweight at this point in his career for the Premier league. He's certainly a very good prospect, but it's a big ask in my opinion to come to United and perform straight off the bat at his age.

    No if there's any chances he's available we'll compete for his signature.

    About time we challenged rivals for top quality players. It's sickening to see how many have gone elsewhere in recent years without us even trying to sign them.

    Yeah fair enough. We'd be crazy not to make a move for him given his talent, but also his marketing potential.

    He shouldn't really be moving right now, but yeah if anyone else goes for him, we should definitely be challenging.

    Probably means we would only move for him THIS year if a rival does.

    Sounds like the Martial deal.

    He's also the wet dream for any club owner by an American, having their country's star player at their club.

    He'd be up there with Dybala as my pick for the right hand side, there's merits of both to be honest one's more of an out and out winger the other is more of a match winner

    Announce 2 footed Messi!!!! Seriously though, I'm totally bias (American), Pulisic doesn't really have any weakness, is very direct, seems very mature and has an edge to his demeanor on the pitch.

    I have to imagine he's going to cost a lot more than the €30mm to €50mm I've seen speculated.

    Start at €100M and work from there.
