What do they say?

They say that Manchester United will battle it out with Juventus and Barcelona for one of the most exciting young talents in the world game.

Meanwhile, The Guardian reports:

United had scouts in Basel last week to watch their game against Fiorentina

soccersweep says:

Juventus have Morata, Dybala and Mandzukic. Barcelona have Messi, Suarez and Neymar. So perhaps Manchester United’s need for a new striking superstar is the greatest.

And what a player this kid looks. He’s just 18 but you would never know by looking at him. He already has a physique like Mario Balotelli and he’s very quick too.

But his eye for goal is what really piques the interest. Emboli is powerful but also has the deftest of touches as you will see from his youtube highlights.

With Manchester United clearly investing in the long-term of the club, Embolo would be a wonderful addition to the likes of Martial and Memphis. Those three could form a blistering partnership in years to come.

At just 18, Emboli has played 7 times for Switzerland already and scored once. He’s also hit 24 in 67 games for Basel including 6 in 16 this season.

Likelihood? 7/10 – Manchester United need firepower and Louis loves to buy a young colt.

Shall we see his highlights? You don’t want to miss this one

Your shout: Manchester United fans, do you think he’s worth a nibble?
