Real confirm Faubert move

Real Madrid are claiming the deal to sign Julien Faubert on loan for the rest of the season has been completed.

The Spanish giants confirmed that they had landed the United winger in a statement on realmadrid.com, which read:

"Real Madrid and West Ham United have agreed to a deal that will see Julien Faubert play for the club through the end of the current season.

"He is capable of assisting a defender and on the same play reaching the opponent's byline to put in a cross. Faubert has perfected his shot from the right flank and now hopes to put it on display with Real Madrid."

Whilst that description may leave some United supporters wondering if they are talking about the same Julien Faubert that has failed to make an impression at West Ham the deal represents further good business for the club, who will now look for a replacement ahead of Monday's 5pm transfer deadline.

News of Faubert's surprise move emerged last night when West Ham confirmed they had agreed a deal in priciple that would see the French wide-man join Real on loan for a fee of £1.5million with view to a £6million permanent deal in the summer.

''I for one am not that happy about this move, the only thing that keeps me from dwelling about it as the same for Bellers is the fact that he wanted to go.

We have potentially lost a great attacking player. He has not had a good time at Upton Park and he was not prepared to work hard and prove his doubters wrong. Hopefully we will be able to find another right winger with a bit of 'swagger' about him and who will be able to play the type of ball we are playing.

There will definitely be life after him but I would have liked to see him reach his real levels at our club and help us get into Europe and help us push on in the league.''
