Manchester United are pushing to sign Chelsea and USA forward Christian Pulisic in January, according to Daily Mail.

The Red Devils face competition from Premier League rivals Arsenal and Newcastle United for the transfer of Pulisic.

The World Cup performances of Pulisic have put all three Premier League clubs on alert for a potential January transfer away from Chelsea.

Pulisic has about 18 months left on his Chelsea contract and the Blues are considering whether it would make more economic sense to cash in on the 24-year-old during the January window rather than allow his contract to run down to the final 12 months and his value depreciate further.

The 24 year old American has impressed at the World Cup and was named Man of the Match in USA’s goalless draw against England.
