‘An Instant Hit’ ‘Could Do With Him Now’ – Fans Deliver Their Verdict On Chelsea’s First January Recruit

Chelsea announced the signing of Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund today. The American international will cost £58m.

However, as part of the agreement, the 20-year-old will be loaned back to Dortmund for the remainder of the season.

Fans are mostly happy with the club recruiting Pulisic:

Others can’t understand why the winger isn’t joining the Blues straight away:

It’s likely that Dortmund would only accept a deal in January if it was agreed he would stay until the summer. With Chelsea having to be mindful of a possible ban from transfers, the London club obviously wanted to make sure that the deal was signed now, even if they had to loan him back to meet Dortmund’s demands.

£58m is, though, a hefty price for a player who has only recently turned 20. He does have some experience under his belt, having already played 115 matches of senior football, but many will be hoping to see him improve on his average of scoring every 7.5 games.
