Pulisic names top player he is looking forward to playing with at Chelsea… and it’s not Hazard in huge hint over Real Madrid transfer

    CHELSEA’S £58million signing Christian Pulisic has revealed the player he is most looking forward to playing with.

    And perhaps dropping a hint that Eden Hazard could be heading to pastures new this summer, it isn’t the diminutive Belgian.

    Pulisic will start the season at Stamford Bridge after a six-month loan spell at Borussia Dortmund, from where the Blues bought him from in January.

    And many have already speculated that he is the natural replacement for Hazard, who is being strongly linked with a £100m move to Real Madrid.

    While fans will be expecting big things from the 20-year-old American international, he is just as excited to start the new chapter in his career.

    And Pulisic is excited to play with one player in particular – French midfielder N’Golo Kante.

    In his first official club interview, Pulisic said: “There are so many good players here.

    “I think I’m really excited to play with Kante I’m excited to meet him, I love him as a player.

    I’ve been waiting a long time for this, it’s been one of my biggest dreams to be here and play in the Premier League

    “Obviously the back line too, David Luiz, [Antonio] Rudiger, those guys, I think it’s going to be really cool.”

    Pulisic actually started his youth career in England with non-league Brackley Town before his family moved to Germany.

    And he is delighted to be back on these shores and ready to prove he has what it takes at Chelsea.

    He added: £[It’s] a little change for me, to be back in England, and to be able to speak English and to be here and meet the guys, I’m thrilled.

    “I’ve been waiting a long time for this, it’s been one of my biggest dreams to be here and play in the Premier League.

    “To be a Chelsea player is a huge honour and I’m very excited.”

    There are still two game weeks left in the German calendar, but Saturday’s 3-2 win over Fortuna for Borussia Dortmund was the 20-year-old’s last match at the Signal Iduna Park.

    Lucien Favre included Pulisic in the starting line-up for the crucial clash and the winger was awarded a bouquet of flowers in a special presentation before kick-off.

    The American told an emotional Yellow Wall: “Thank you for five wonderful years. Without you fans, I would not be here.

    “Dortmund will always feel like home. All the best and hopefully see you again one day.”
