Manchester United legend and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has named Chelsea star Christian Pulisic as the next world star in the Premier League.

Pulisic joined Chelsea from Dortmund last year and has gone on to become one of the most standout players in the Premier League, earning praises from fans and pundits, including Gary Neville who handpicked him as the one to watch.

“Pulisic, to me, is the next world star in the Premier League,” he told 90 Min.

“You saw glimpses of it pre-lockdown and glimpses when he played an international game at Wembley two years ago.

“But I watched him three or four times in the games after lockdown and that was a different level. That is starting to do things on a pitch that Real Madrid and Barcelona would be looking at, thinking, ‘We need him’, like they have done with [Eden] Hazard and other players in the past.

“He’s starting to get to that emergence where you start to think this could really be his season.”
