New Manchester United signing Gabriel Obertan is set to miss at least the opening three months of the season through injury. The 20-year old winger, who has been likened to ex-Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, joined the Old Trafford outfit from Bordeaux on a four year deal earlier this month, having passed a medical with Sir Alex Ferguson's side And the Scot has revealed that he was aware that the French U21 international had sustained the injury while playing for his former side, but decided to sign the starlet regardless. "Obertan has an injury that will keep him out for three months or maybe more," he said. "We were aware of that at the medical but we're quite happy with the situation."
