Man Utd to offer £13M for Standard Liege playmaker Defour

Manchester United are preparing an offer for Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour.

The Daily Mail says United are weighing up a £13m bid for Belgian midfielder Defour.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been a fan of the Standard Liege player for some time, but will have to wait until he recovers from a broken foot before making a bid.

Defour has a contract until 2013 but his agent Paul Stefani confirmed: "Sir Alex has been interested in Steven since he sent him the letter last September when he was struggling with injury.

"He is still interested but we have to wait for an offer to be accepted by Standard Liege.

"There is also interest from clubs in Spain, Italy and Germany, but everyone wants to play in the Premier League."
