Christian Pulisic's Borussia Dortmund to tour U.S. in summer

Christian Pulisic has revealed that he chooses to play as Borussia Dortmund on FIFA as it gives him a chance to manage the side.

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed plans for a summer tour of the United States, including a friendly against MLS expansion club LAFC and matches in the International Champions Cup.

Sources at the Bundesliga side told ESPN FC on Wednesday that Dortmund will play a match against LAFC at the Banc of California Stadium, which with its steep standing terraces is partially inspired by Dortmund's Westfalenstadion.

While that match could already take place as an epilogue to Dortmund's 2017-18 season in May -- depending on the club's success in Europa League, with the final being played on May 16 -- Dortmund will also participate in the International Champions Cup for a third consecutive year, but for the first time in the U.S., BVB announced.

Christian Pulisic looks set to visit the U.S. with Dortmund this summer.

The ICC will be held in July, and Dortmund "will most probably play two matches" in the series, the club said.

The games could be an opportunity for fans to watch United States star Christian Pulisic, who came through the ranks of BVB's youth academy, having previously joined the club as a 16-year-old in early 2015. A year later, he was promoted to the senior team for whom he has since played in 79 competitive matches, scoring 11 goals and setting up a further 14.

"We hope, and also believe there are positive indications, that the people in the USA are also excited at the prospect of receiving their first visit from BVB, including the entire first team and Christian Pulisic, the U.S. Footballer of the Year," Borussia director for sales and marketing Carsten Cramer said in quotes on the club's website.

Cramer added Dortmund was "extremely delighted" to receive a third consecutive invitation to the ICC, saying that the "increasing presence" in it "underlines how important Borussia Dortmund has become on a sporting level."
