Bordeaux’s 20-year old winger and French U-21 international, Gabriel Obertan (No.7 in pic), is being linked with an impending move to Man United according to Bordeaux’s president Jean-Louis Triaud. He has scored only once after being loaned to Lorient in the second half of last season and made 15 appearances for them.

Arsenal, and the 2 Milan clubs are also stated to be following the player but it seems that United won the battle for his signature, but with the crazy transfers going around, everything might still be possible. Fee for his transfer yet to be disclosed by the club.

    i say he’s a talented boy! but of course based on FM! i have to admit he’s a little on the tiny side, and may find himself victim of the Ronaldo referee treatment should he get bullied off the ball!

    Me too never heard of him before, until I found an article about his transfer on some websites. Read today that SAF may bid around 20M pounds on Huntelaar as well to bring him in, must wait n see now.

    blimey! on FM his jumping n heading stats are 9 and 13 out of 20! usually thats a sign of vertical disadvantage! perhaps my FM didn’t generate his stats to grow much! hehe
