By on January 2, 2019

Christian Pulisic just became the highest paid American soccer player ever.

The 20-year old Hershey, Pennsylvania native has decided to sign with Premier League powerhouse Chelsea for a record fee of $73 million after a three-plus year stint with Borussia Dortmund.

“Christian has shown his quality during a fantastic spell in Germany and at just 20, we believe he has the potential to become an important Chelsea player for many years to come,” said Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia.

“We look forward to welcoming him to Stamford Bridge in the summer and wish him and Dortmund every success for the remainder of the season.”

Pulisic, who will be loaned back to BVB until the end of the 2018/19 season, has appeared in 115 games with the club since 2015, scoring 15 goals in the process.
