MANCHESTER United are favourites to sign winger Gabriel Obertan, according to Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud.

Obertan, 20, one of the France's brightest talents, has been coveted by Chelsea, Arsenal, Inter Milan and AC Milan.

Triaud told L'Equipe "It's actually a great possibility,' he told L'Equipe. "United want him and we would be delighted to see Gabriel develop in such a club. We will make it official when the moment comes.'

Obertan is a regular in the France Under-21 side and scored against England U21 in March.
