Gaëtan Charbonnier (born December 27, 1988 in Saint-Mandé) is a French professional football player who currently plays as a striker for Ligue 1 club Montpellier HSC.


Charbonnier started his career at Championnat de France amateur side SO Châtellerault in 2007–08, his debut season impressing enough to be taken on by Paris Saint-Germain. After playing the 2008-09 season with PSG's reserve team, Charbonnier changed clubs when he was unable to make the first team. He signed a four-year contract in June 2009 for Angers SCO[1] where he played three seasons in Ligue 2. Each season saw him increase his goal tally - 3 in 2009-2010, 8 in 2010-11, and 12 in 2011-12.

His goal return landed him a move on 20 June 2012 to reigning Ligue 1 champions Montpellier HSC where he signed a four-year contract,[2] announced the same day along with Toulouse defender Daniel Congré.[3]
