Youngster Set For Old Trafford Exit

By on August 7, 2011

Manchester United are close to selling their young French winger, Gabriel Obertan to Newcastle in a £3 million deal.

The 22 year-old, who signed for United in 2009 after Cristiano Ronaldo had left for Real Madrid, has found it difficult to establish a starting spot and has rarely impressed at Old Trafford.

He was relatively unknown before his £3 million move to United, and after two seasons with only 28 appearances and one goal in total, as well as a bunch of reserve games in which he seemed a lot more comfortable, Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to say goodbye.

Few will be shedding a tear at the thought of Obertan departing United, but most at the club will wish him well for the future at a club whose fans may give him more time and exert less pressure or immediate expectation on an inexperienced, young, potential talent.

According to the Mail, the player has agreed a five year deal at Newcastle after discussing personal terms, with United expecting to recoup the fee paid for him in 2009.
