RB Leipzig to burn off Man Utd, Real Madrid competition for Umaro Embalo

Published on: 14 January 2018

Manchester United face missing out on Benfica striker Umaro Embalo.

United officials have been working hard on a deal for the teenager for several months and were hopeful of bringing him to England this month.

However, O Jogo says RB Leipzig are now favourites to land Embalo with a €13m bid lodged. The offer also includes a hefty percentage of any sell on fee.

United, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also keen, but Embalo now favours a move to RBL where he believes his progress will be best served.

Interestingly, Embalo met personally last week Dietrich Mateschitz, an executive with Red Bull, the owners of RBL.
