Christian Pulisic is all but certainly not moving to MLS any time soon, but the league has made sure that a =mechanism would be in place to take care of any possible arrival.
MLS announced on Monday that Pulisic has been added to the league’s Allocation List, which is utilized for signings of U.S. Men’s National Team players, elite U.S. youth prospects and players that have been sold by MLS teams for more than $500,000. With his addition, Pulisic joins USMNT regulars like Fabian Johnson and Aron Johannsson, former MLS stars Geoff Cameron and Obafemi Martins and youth prospects like Julian Green and Rubio Rubin, among others.
As things stand, the Chicago Fire maintain the top spot in the Allocation Order followed by New York City FC and Real Salt Lake in second and third, respectively.
While an MLS move remains a distant, distant idea, Pulisic is currently riding high after a pair of standout performances with Borussia Dortmund. After providing an assist in a midweek Champions League win, Pulisic scored a goal while adding two more assists in a 6-0 beatdown of SV Darmstadt
