Manchester United target Breel Embolo is reportedly on the verge of joining Schalke on a five-year deal for a fee in the region of £15.3million.
The Basel wonderkid has been chased by United but it appears Schalke have won the race to sign the Switzerland international.
According to Swiss daily Blick, the Bundesliga side have agreed a deal with Basel worth around €20million, with the fee being paid in three installments.
The versatile forward scored 13 goals for Basel last season, with United said to have identified the 19-year-old as one of their main targets for the summer.
But Schalke have stepped in as they prepare for the exit of Leroy Sane, who is a target for Manchester City.
