Bundesliga outfit Schalke have secured the signature of Switzerland international Breel Embolo.

Embolo, 19, has been linked to a number of clubs in recent weeks, but Schalke have now confirmed that they have won the race for his signature. 

And they have revealed the news quite brilliantly. Indeed, as you can see from the tweet below, they have taken a cheeky dig at the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona and Arsenal, who were all credited with an interest in the player.

You certainly have to applaud the club's sense of humour, but it's safe to say that fans of United and co. may not see the funny side.

That's because Embolo is comfortably one of the most exciting teenagers in Europe. 

Trolling tweet 

The now former Basel man has quickly come to prominence and enjoyed a key role for Switzerland during the European Championships. 

Unfortunately for the youngster, his national side crashed out in the Round of 16 at the hands of Poland in a penalty shootout on Saturday, but he will now be excited by the prospect of lining up for Schalke. 

It's certainly a remarkable coup for the Bundesliga club, who will now be hoping to challenge the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund towards the summit of the division next term. 

What do you make of the deal? Have your say below!
