Manchester United expected to sign Obertan
Monday 06 July 2009
Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud believes there is a "great possibility" Manchester United will sign Gabriel Obertan.
The young winger is regarded as one of France's brightest prospects and Chelsea have been monitoring him since 2007.
United, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Arsenal have all been linked with Obertan too and Triaud believes the Barclays Premier League champions will win the battle for the 20-year-old's signature.
"It's actually a great possibility," he told L'Equipe. "United want him and we would be delighted to see Gabriel develop in such a club.
"We will make it official when the moment comes."
Obertan, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Lorient, is a regular in the France Under-21 side and scored against England U21 in March.
He was awarded the Most Valuable Player award at last month's Toulon International Youth Tournament.
