Man United ready suprise bid to sign Tottenham target – report
Manchester United are in talks to sign Breel Embolo from Basel this summer, according to reports
Manchester United are ready to make a surprise bid to sign Basel forward Breel Embolo ahead of Tottenham this summer, according to reports.
The Red Devils announced their first signing of the summer on Wednesday as they confirmed defender Eric Bailly as Jose Mourinho’s first recruit.
United also tied veteran midfielder Michael Carrick down to a new one-year contract on Thursday as Mourinho begins to work on his squad ahead of next season.
Tottenham have been heavily linked with a move to bring Embolo to White Hart Lane in recent weeks as Mauricio Pochettino looks to prepare his squad for a return to the Champions League next season.
However, according to Swiss publication 20 Minuten, Embolo is now a top target for United and the Red Devils are already in negotiations to push through a deal.
Mourinho has been tasked with restoring the Red Devils to the top of English football after their fifth-placed finish last season.
