According to the media our team will be extended with the French 20 years old Gabriel Obertan. My first reaction was: Gabriel who and I bet we all think that when hearing the name???
The guy has been a member of Bordeaux since 2006 and has played 54 games for the Girondins, while scoring 3 times. In 2009 former ManUtd player Laurent Blanc, now Manager over at Bordeaux, decided to loan him out to Lorient, French Ligue 1 ((Like the Championship for France)) team and there he has played 8 games and scored 1.
Obertan is said to be a winger who can also play as striker or in the midfield. He is rumoured to have attracted the attention of Arsenal and Inter as well. I think that Jean-Louis Triaud , President of Bordeaux, had translation problems when he declared that we were on the verge of signing Obertan and actually meant the other Manchester.
