Bordeaux are interested in Manchester United defender Mikael Silvestre, according to reports in France.

New Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc is understood to be on the lookout for a new defender and France Football claims he has targeted Silvestre.

The report says Blanc, who played alongside Silvestre at Manchester United, has contacted the 29-year-old to gauge his interest.

Silvestre struggled to get in the United side at times last season due to the emergence of Patrice Evra and return to fitness of Gabriel Heinze.

He missed the last three months of United's campaign due to a dislocated shoulder and there has been speculation about a summer move.

Silvestre last month dismissed talk that he could decide to leave Old Trafford.
