Mourinho aiming to pip Spurs to prolific forward with Man United eager to land star


With Euro 2016 blazing from the big screens in the Transfer Tavern, the Manchester United and Spurs fans propping up the bar were recently afforded a closer look at strike target Breel Embolo. 

The Swiss international has been linked with both clubs this summer, though his showing against Romania did little to excite either sections of supporters.

However, according to German outlet Bildthe Red Devils and their brand new manager, Jose Mourinho, remain keen on luring the 19-year old to Old Trafford.

The FC Basel man is hugely rated in the European game after emerging for the Swiss champions and has also been touted as a potential target for ambitious Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig.

It is believed the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ is eager to land him ahead of Spurs, who are understood to be considering him as a high quality backup for star man Harry Kane.

Will Embolo end up in the Premier League? If so, where would he fit in better?
