When his mother got a scholarship to teach abroad for a year, he came over with his family to stay in the village of Tackley, eight miles north of Oxford.

And Pulisic started playing for one of Brackley Town’s youth teams and was taken to games by his Dad, including visits to watch Tottenham and United.

Mourinho is determined not to play second fiddle to great rival Pep Guardiola at the Etihad and could swoop for Pulisic.

The Potuguese believes signing a player who can unlock the tightest of defences — a ‘magician’ as he labelled it — will help his team close the gap.

Mourinho ideally wants his new man in the January transfer window.

Chelsea ace Eden Hazard is being eyed in a £90million deal.

Mesut Ozil is also wanted, but Mourinho would have to wait until the Arsenal star’s contract is up at the end of the season.

Gareth Bale is a long-term target and Chelsea winger Willian is a Mourinho favourite.

United are also keeping tabs on Bordeaux winger Malcolm.
