Manchester United have blown Tottenham Hotspur and RB Leipzig out of the water in the race for Swiss striker Breel Embolo, according to LVZ (German).

Initially, RB Leipzeig were thought to be favourites to sign Embolo, but then Premier League sides starting taking an interest in the impressive youngster. First Spurs registered an interest and hoped to push on with a deal, but it didn't last long as Man Utd were next to knock on Basel's door. Jose Mourinho is a huge fan of Embolo and has implored officials to splash out on the striker. Now it's reported that United have made an offer to good to turn down.

Embolo, 19, scored 13 goals and provided 9 assists for FC Basel last season. With incredible strength in hold up play, skill enough to dribble past people, clever movement and precise finishing, Embolo appears to be the complete package.

But what will this mean for the likes of Marcus Rashford? He'll have to fight doubly hard to keep his foot in the door with a player this good coming in...
