Another Signing For Man United?

Man United are closing in on another siging according to Bordeaux president Jean-Lous Triaud. Triaud has said that Man United are close to signing their winger Gabriel Obertan.

Obertan is 20-years-old and he has been a regular player for Bordeaux since the age of 17. Last season he was loaned out to French side Lorient for the second half of the season. He made 15 appearances for Lorient and scored only one goal.

This isn't the first time that 'big' clubs have been interested in him, in the past Inter Milan, AC Milan and Arsenal were keeping an eye on him.

"There is a very strong likelihood that the deal will go ahead," Triaud told L'Equipe.

"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,"

If he does come to Man United I don't think he will be put into the first XI straight away but I am sure he will make some appearances.
