Bordeaux winger closing in on United move

The 20-year-old has been linked with Arsenal, Inter Milan and AC Milan but United appears to have won the race for the youngster.

“There is a very strong likelihood that the deal will go ahead,” confirmed Triaud to L’Equipe.

“Manchester United want to sign him and, for our part, we would be delighted to see Gabriel playing for such a prestigious club.

“We will make the official announcement when the time is right.”
