Agent claims Man Utd head race for Belgium star Defour

Manchester United are favourites to sign Belgium midfield star Steven Defour, according to his agent. Speaking to Sport.co.uk, agent Paul Stefani confirmed the Sir Alex Ferguson was still interested in the Standard Liege skipper.

He said: "Sir Alex is always interested in Steven ever since he sent him the letter when he was struggling with injury. He is interested but we have to wait for an offer to be validated.

"At the moment he is not 100 per cent because of his long term injury, and now he has to work on recovering from this."

Stefani also stated Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City were ready to swoop in for the 22 year olds signature as soon as he reaches full fitness.

"Yes, they are interested, but many clubs are interested, from Spain, Italy, and Germany. To say that tomorrow he will go to England is not right," he added.

"There is always interest and everyone wants to play in the Premier League because it is a very big competition. But, I think we will have to wait until he is a 100 percent fit, not 85 percent."
