In April 2016, he became the youngest foreigner to score a goal in the Bundesliga. Later that month, he became the youngest player ever to score two goals in the Bundesliga. On May 28, 2016, he scored in an international friendly against Bolivia to become the youngest player in the modern era to score a goal for the United States at 17 years 253 days old. On September 2, 2016, he became the youngest American player to score a goal in World Cup qualifying history at 17 years, 349 days.

Pulisic joined Manchester United in July 2017 for £32 million, following the move he became an integeral part of United's title win that season and he was awarded the PFA Young Player of the Year.
