Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Christian Pulisic will join Chelsea for €64m (£58m),
The American international Christian Pulisic, regarded as one of the hottest properties in European football, signed for Premier League side Chelsea on Wednesday but set to be loaned back to the Bundesliga leaders until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old, who moved to Germany as a teenager and has made more than 80 appearances for Dortmund, admitted in November that he hoped to play in the Premier League having refused to sign an extension to his existing contract.
“It was always Christian’s dream to play in the Premier League,” said BVB sporting director Michael Zorc. “That certainly has to do with his American background, and as a result we were unable to extend his contract. Against this background, we have decided to accept an extremely lucrative bid by Chelsea, given the low contract maturity.
“Christian Pulisic is a character perfect player. I am sure that in the coming months he will do everything in his power to bring his high quality to the team and to achieve his sporting goals with his team-mates Borussia Dortmund.”
Transfer: Real Madrid completes £52million deal as Zidane lands first summer signing
Luka Jovic has completed a £52.4m (€60m) move to Real Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt, according to Sky Germany.
The 21-year-old Serbia international striker has signed a five-year contract with the Spanish giants.
Jovic will earn him £43.7m (€50m) in total or £8.7m a year.
The striker joined Frankfurt on loan from Benfica in the summer and last month the Bundesliga club exercised their option to make the move permanent.
Jovic has scored 17 goals in 31 Bundesliga appearances this season and 10 more in the Europa League, where Frankfurt lost to Chelsea on penalties in the semi-finals.
