Deschamps said: “I know Gaby, I saw him playing in France for two years.
“At Manchester United he is used as a left full-back but I don’t think it is his best position.
“I think he is more a central defender. Considering the number of left-sided defenders at Manchester United, if there is an opportunity and he is attracted, why not?
“He is a very good player of an international level.
“He is a leader, a winner. Also, Gaby has a European passport and that is an advantage.”
