The Transfer Talk panel discuss the ramifications of Christian Pulisic's £57.6m move to Chelsea.

He was not part of Jose Mourinho's plans but United interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer returned him to the fold with his first Premier League start since September in Wednesday's win at Newcastle.

Solskjaer insisted "there aren't many better right-backs going forward with his abilities", as he suggested he wants Valencia to feature in United's resurgence.
