According to newspaper reports, Bordeaux winger Gabriel Obertan is currently in Manchester, having a medical at United before signing for the Champions. The reports claim United will pay Ł3m for him to Bordeaux.

Their boss, the former Red Laurent Blanc admitted he was surprised by the move but he believes that United will bring the best out of the talented winger.

If he is indeed as cheap as the rumours suggest then we’ll still have the Ronaldo money intact and available… I’m very curious whether we’ll ever spend it or just use it to pay off some of the crippling debts.
