Christian Pulisic has fuelled the speculation linking him with a possible move to Manchester United in the future by admitting that he used to support the Red Devils as a youngster growing up.

The 19-year-old is widely regarded as one of the most promising talents in world football and he has been attracting rave reviews for his performances for Borussia Dortmund.

Pulisic has been touted as a target for both Liverpool FC and Manchester United in the last few months, and there is bound to be plenty of fresh speculation as the summer transfer window approaches.

Now, the USA international has fuelled the talk of a possible move to Old Trafford in the future by admitting that he grew up as a Manchester United fan.

Asked if he supported Manchester United as a youngster, Pulisic told ESPN FC: “Yeah, I was. I was definitely a big fan.

“Of course, right now I am under contract with Dortmund and I’m not looking around or doing anything like that so I’m very focused there.

“But, yeah, it’s cool to hear all this stuff!'”

Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League trip to Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils are aiming to at least finish in the top four in Jose Mourinho’s second season in charge at Old Trafford.

Manchester United, who finished sixth last term, will take on Spanish side Sevilla for a place in the last 16 in the Champions League later this month.
