Bordeaux: Obertan wants to play for United

In today’s transfer news, this has clear come out of left field.

According to Bordeaux president, Jean-Louis Triaud, Bordeaux midfielder Gabriel Obertan is on the verge of signing for us.

“There is a very strong likelihood that the deal will go ahead. Manchester United want to sign him and, for our part, we would be delighted to see Gabriel playing for such a prestigious club. We will make the official announcement when the time is right.”

It is odd that a president would be glad to see the back of one of his promising talents. No transfer fee as of now has been known to be agreed. So there is still sometime to go before this deal bears fruition.

He’s a midfielder who can play across the midfield, even as a winger. Obviously for those of us who know little of French football, Youtube is our solace. Here’s a sample of him which shows him to be a little direct player, but clearly isn’t the finished product. However, we’d like feedback from those who follow French football.
