The teenage prospect has admitted he is a big fan of the Old Trafford side, as he looks to make his mark at Signal Iduna Park
The 17-year-old is regarded as one of the best youngsters around in the game and he was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in the closing days of the transfer window.
However, United might have a better chance luring him to Old Trafford instead following the winger’s latest comments.
“I was a big Manchester United fan when I was younger,” Pulisic told ESPN. “I loved to watch Rooney. I wouldn’t say I’m a similar player, though.
“I think his passion for the game is something you don’t see much in players. That’s what I loved about him.”
Pulisic faces stiff competition for a starting berth at Dortmund following the arrival of players such as Mario Gotze, Andre Schurrle, Emre Mor and Ousmane Dembele, but he sees no reason for concern following BVB’s busy transfer market.
“I don’t look at those guys any differently than I do any other player because of what they have accomplished already,” Pulisic added.
“I don’t think the coach does either. I think he’s just looking at every day in training and how we’re performing at the moment.
