Manchester United win the race for highly rated 18-year old

Manchester United have reportedly won the race to sign highly rated 18-year old Breel Embolo from swiss side FC Basle.

Reports coming out of Switzerland over the last few days have spoken of United’s interest in the forward, and now in further developments, newly promoted Bundesliga club Red Bull Leipzig have pulled out of a deal having claimed that he is on his way to Old Trafford.

It is claimed that United will offer the 18-year old £4.6million-a-year salary to lure him to the Premier League this summer, as the club look to take some of the best young talent from around the world.

It is claimed United will pay £15million for Embolo, who is currently training with the Swiss squad ahead of Euro 2016.
