Video: Manchester United’s newest signing in action
Gabriel Obertan is already the subject of YouTube compilations
Manchester United today confirmed the signing of Bordeaux winger Gabriel Obertan for £3 million – 3.75% of the Cristiano Ronaldo funded transfer kitty.
The 20-year-old was named MVP of the prestigious Toulon Tournament last month but hadn’t enjoyed much success at club level with either Bordeaux or on loan at Lorient last season, prompting boss Laurent Blanc to express surprise at Manchester United’s interest.
The Frenchman looks promising in this YouTube tribute but The Spoiler always treats these with caution after being conned a couple of years ago by a video making Julien Faubert look like a faster version of Ronaldo.
