Chelsea have completed the signing of Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund for £58 million.
The winger, 20, is club’s third most-expensive signing in history he will join the Blues in the mid year.
BVB announced the news on social media and Pulisic released a heartfelt statement to the fans, his partners and the managers at Dortmund.
It read: « It is with a substantial heart that I declare that I will be entering my final months at our world-famous club.
« It feels like just yesterday that I landed in Dortmund as a crude, energized, very nervous but exceptionally proud 16-year-old from a small American town called Hershey.
« I had no idea what lay ahead but I soon discovered that as a young Schwarzgelben, I would be in the best possible hands.
« I might want to thank each one of those mentors who I have played under and who have gave me these chances.
« What’s more, to my astonishing colleagues consistently, you took me in as a young boy, shared your experience with me, helped to me develop and grow into a professional footballer.
The 20-year-old expressed gratitude toward the boss at Dortmund and pledged to subscribe to the club totally for whatever is left of the season.
He included: « In the late spring of 2019, I proceed onward to Chelsea and to another opposition, the English Premier League.
« It’s a privilege to have signed for such a legendary club and I look forward to working hard towards being a supporter of their group of world class players.
What’s more, Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia stated: « We are delighted to have signed one of Europe’s most sought-after young players.
