It remains to be seen if Liverpool reignite their interest in Pulisic - the Reds seem to be focusing on a swoop for Monaco's Thomas Lemar and the French League champions are reportedly willing to listen to offers of around £62m - but The Independent report that Jurgen Klopp's side are likely to make a move for the talented teenager, with United ready to respond to any activity from Anfield.

According to The Independent, Manchester United are ready to rival Liverpool in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund playmaker Christian Pulisic, potentially at the end of the season. "I'd rather see the club take their time rather than hastily spend it on players who might not be up to it", Thompson told SkySports.

"LeBron James has always been a big inspiration of mine,"he said".

"We need to go for high quality". "I'm a big fan-I just love to watch him and I obviously support wherever he is".

"I played one year of competitive basketball actually", he said. 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. I was always the smallest one but I did my best.

United chiefs are big fans of the 19-year-old and believe he could be a big success both on and off the pitch for the club, similar to Paul Pogba.

In all he has scored nine goals in 20 caps for the national team. Despite Pulisic's production, which earned him US Male Player of the Year honors, the US failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986.

Despite expressing his interest in emulating the likes of baseball-turned-NFL star Bo Jackson in one day moving from football to the NBA, Pulisic admitted that any transition would be unlikely.

As for the video of Pulisic dunking, the 19-year-old moved to quash talk that the rim must have been lowered from the regulation height of 10 feet in order for him to reach the basket.
