The transfer race for Swiss forward Breel Embolo reached its conclusion this past weekend as the Basel teen completed a transfer to Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04.
Not content to merely win the race for Embolo, Schalke 04 decided to taunt some of the teams that tried and failed to sign him.
On their official Twitter page several hours after the move was made official, Schalke showed a graphic of five club logos: Arsenal, VfL Wolfsburg, Barcelona, Manchester United and Red Bull Leipzig – with slash marks over them, representing them being crossed off a list.

According to the Daily Star, Embolo’s switch cost £20 million.
