Borussia Dortmund youngster Christian Pulisic has revealed Manchester United used to be his favourite team in his younger years and is drawing inspiration from Wayne Rooney. The 17-year-old is regarded as one of the best youngsters around in the game and he was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in the closing days of the transfer window. However, United might have a better chance luring him to Old Trafford instead following the winger's latest comments. "I was a big Manchester United fan when I was younger," Pulisic told ESPN. "I loved to watch Rooney. I wouldn't say I'm a similar player, though. "I think his passion for the game is something you don't see much in players. That's what I loved about him."
