Manchester United continue to build their squad with the addition of French winger Gabriel Obertan.
The 20-year-old has agreed a four-year contract with the Barclays Premier League champions with reports in France claiming he will cost £3 million.
Obertan, a Paris-born France Under-21 international who can fill several attacking roles, will have to wait for his first-team bow, however, as an unspecified minor injury will keep him out of United’s forthcoming tour of the Far East.
“Gabriel is a player we have tracked for a few years now, but because of his educational programme our efforts to get him here have always been delayed,” United manager Sir Alex Ferguson told his club’s official website.
“We are delighted to get him now as he is an exciting prospect. We like to get young players and develop them, and we will see that in Gabriel over the next two years.”
Sir Alex has again opted for youth, is he in the midst of rebuilding a new team again? Utd fans must be a little worried that no real star player has signed up just yet but maybe it’s just a matter of time, Obertan’s signature could make way for Nani to leave the club.
