When Christian Pulisic burst onto the U.S. soccer scene, he was heralded as the nation's 'Wonder Boy' and he has since grown into one of its biggest stars.

Still in the early stage of his playing career, the skilful winger enjoyed a number of seasons in Germany's top flight with Borussia Dortmund and made the switch to Premier League side Chelsea in 2019.

The most expensive North American player in history, Pulisic's ability and star appeal put him in a strong position in terms of his earning power and he has been rewarded with a number of lucrative deals.

So, what is the USMNT star's net worth and how much is he earning? What sort of endorsements does he have? Goal brings you everything you need to know.

What is Christian Pulisic's net worth?

Net worth: $10 million (£8m)
Source of wealth: Football contracts, investments, sponsorships
Date of Birth: September 18, 1998
Country of birth: United States

Although it is difficult to put an exact figure on it, Pulisic's net worth is estimated to be around $10 million (£8m) by the website Celebrity Net Worth.

He is still in his early 20s and at the beginning of his career so he has not had the time to acquire vast wealth, although a figure of $10m is still considerable and it will only rise the longer he plays at a high level.

By way of comparison, Pulisic's net worth is lower than that of Raheem Sterling (£28m/$36m) and a fraction of Cristiano Ronaldo's (over $400m).

What is Christian Pulisic's salary?

Pulisic is reported to earn £145,000 ($188,000) a week for the duration of his contract with Chelsea, which is set to run until the summer of 2024.

He earns approximately £7.5m (just under $10m) every year from his base club contract alone, so his five-year deal with the Blues is worth £37.5m ($49m) in total.  

Of course, most footballers also negotiate appearance-related bonuses, so his contract is likely to yield an even higher reward - as long as he plays well.

He is one of the highest earners at Stamford Bridge, along with Timo Werner, Kepa Arrizabalaga and N'Golo Kante.

What charity work does Christian Pulisic do?

Pulisic has actively taken part in a number of charitable ventures and is only too happy to use his position as one of America's best known footballers to help others where possible.

After Hurricane Maria left parts of Puerto Rico devastated in 2017, he got involved in a campaign to raise money after learning that a young fan had donated a Christian Pulisic jersey to the relief fund to be raffled off. In response, the playmaker gifted the young fan a new signed jersey and made a donation to the cause.

At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, he and his USMNT compatriots Weston McKennie and Tyler Adams made donations to Feeding America, a charity that attempts to tackle food poverty.

As well as that, around the same time, Pulisic teamed up with his sponsor Chipotle to have food delivered to the staff at the Milton S. Hersey Medical Center - the hospital where he was born in Pennsylvania.

Along with the entire Premier League roster, Pulisic also signed up to the Players Together initiative during the Covid-19 crisis, which saw them make donations to NHS charities.
