Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Christian Pulisic has signed for Chelsea ‘with immediate effect’.

As per the terms of the agreement, the 20-year-old USA international will remain on loan at the Bundesliga club for the remainder of the current season before making his big switch to the Stamford Bridge.

Dortmund have stated that the transfer fee in question is a hefty €64million and that they won’t be made to pay a penny to ‘rent’ Pulisic for the latter half of the campaign.

That’s top dollar for a player whose contract is due to expire in 18 months, but we guess that doesn’t really matter when you’re being bank-rolled by an oligarch.

    It has been said a lot, but Jesus these transfer fees are out of whack. 64m used to get you a 26-28 year old experienced top class performer (Ibra to Barcelona for example). Now, for some reason, youth players go for over 60m because of “potential”. It’s like people have forgotten that potential also means potential to fail, which is the case unfortunately for a majority of youth prospects.

      @m4: Read today that Chelsea want upwards of £40m before they think about selling Callum Hudson-Odoi, a player with 69 minutes’ worth of Premier League experience.

      With ludicrous valuations like that, it cannot be long before the bottom falls out of the transfer market altogether.

    completely agree about the ludicrous transfer fees. but Pulisic might be the only one worth the price, not for his skill, but his marketing value. Chelsea will quickly become the top club in the United States. Jersey sales will explode

    I’m a Yank and even I will admit it’s sort of a ludicrous fee. THAT SAID, it is the going rate for top level potential and at just barely 20 he’s still got loads of that. Keep in mind that his own peers and former players just voted him the second best young player for the last year AND before he got hit with this string of muscle injuries from the end of last season and continuing into this one that was in the top 5 in all of Europe period for successful dribbles and take-ons. If he gets a little bit more productive in front of goal and gets past his muscle issues he has the potential to be aworld class player. He is unreal with the ball at his feet at pace. As for kit sales here in the States, Chelsea doesn’t need more plastic in their fan base, so that will be extra fun for the rest of us
