Manchester United fans have praised Breel Embolo following the forward’s performance in Switzerland’s 0-0 draw against France at Euro 2016 on Sunday evening.
Embolo was handed his first start of the competition against France and the 19-year-old didn’t disappoint, putting in an enterprising display as Switzerland earned a hard-fought point against Didier Deschamp’s side.
Man United fans, who had one eye on Embolo as the youngster has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, were impressed with what they saw from him:
Embolo was alright in this game for Switzerland, still looks incredibly raw though. Lots of room for improvement.

There's a lot of talent on Switzerland's team. Embolo is only 19 and killing it.

Embolo looks like a top talent from Switzerland.

Switzerland look more dangerous with Embolo starting #Euro2016

Embolo is honestly what's giving Switzerland their Drive upfront

Of course, Embolo, at 19, is far from the finished product but he is strong, quick and relatively confident on the ball.
If he does make the move to United, he would need nurturing and supporters should not expect him to hit the ground running straight away.
Jose Mourinho seems to be making an effort to add talented youngsters to the squad this summer. Eric Bailly, 22, has already joined United while players such as Adam Ounas, 19, are also said to be on the club’s radar.
