Manchester United are keeping a close eye on Liverpool's interest in Dortmund star Christian Pulisic and will move for the American winger if Jurgen Klopp's side submit an offer.

While Liverpool have cash to spend from Coutinho's move to Barcelona, United believe they could hold an advantage over the Reds because of Dortmund's interest in Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The United States global, who has admitted his love for Man United in the past, has emerged on the club's radar after becoming his country's youngest ever 'Player of the Year. "I'm a big fan, and he's a big inspiration of mine".

A player receives three points for each first-place vote in the balloting, two points for each second-place vote and one point for each third-place vote.

"I am playing every week in the Bundesliga, in the Champions League, against top teams", he says. "They weren't really soccer players so we would play basketball all the time".

"I played one year of competitive basketball actually", he said. "If I do that, I should have a good future'".

The 19-year-old star is by far the most talented player to come from USA.

Pulisic's development showed past year in worldwide competition, in which he led the U.S. men's national team with six goals and four assists in nine games started. His six assists led all players in the competition, though his excellent qualifying run wasn't enough to push the US into the 2018 World Cup, as the country disappointingly fell short for the first time since 1986. Klopp, who coached Dortmund from 2008-15, oversaw Pulisic's early development before taking the Liverpool job in October 2016, eight months into the American's tenure in Germany.

The Premier League big boys feel Pulisic is the ideal signing in a commercial sense, as well as landing a world-class talent.
