Pulisic is contracted to Dortmund until 2020 and the club will be desperate to keep hold of a player who regularly impresses in the Bundesliga.

Liverpool, who are managed by former Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp, remain the most likely to make a bid and have money to invest following the £145m sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.
But United have joined the list of suitors, according to Sport Bild, while Bayern have identified Pulisic as a long-term successor to Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, both 34.

Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc wants Pulisic to honour his contract through until 2020 and said: ‘We are planning with him well beyond the summer.’
Since bursting onto the scene in the 2015-16 season, Pulisic has played 81 games for Dortmund and scored 11 times.
He also has nine goals in 20 appearances for the United States national side.
