Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud believes Rangers target Julien Faubert will have signed for another club by Monday.
The France international had been the subject of a reported £4million Rangers bid, but Bordeaux have so far refused Ibrox offers and expect to sell the player imminently to an undisclosed team. Bordeaux had originally wanted to keep Faubert on board but are now resigned to losing him after he went on strike this week.
Triaud said: "It´s simple - the coach (Laurent Blanc) wanted to keep the player but the player wanted to play for another club. Given the player´s wishes, we are prepared to consider it but it would need to be a significant bid. With Rangers the proposition was not significant for Bordeaux, so I don´t think the deal will be done."
