Manchester United sign Obertan

Gabriel Obertan signs for Red Devils

20 year old Frenchman, Gabriel Obertan becomes Manchester United's third signing of the summer transfer window.

The Bordeaux player has signed a four year contract with the Red Devils.The fee of the transfer is not revealed.

He follows the previous signings of Antonio Valencia and Michael Owen to Old Trafford.

Speaking to the clubs official website, manager Sir Alex Ferguson said :
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.

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.

The Frenchman was equally delighted to make the move to the Premier League champions.
I am very happy to join Manchester United.

This is a big opportunity for me to play at such a great club. I am very excited to be here and I look forward to proving what I can do.

He would however miss Manchester United's pre season tour of Asia due to a slight injury.
