Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe remains on the radar of Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Daily Mail says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sudden retirement and Louis Saha's continued problems on top of Wayne Rooney's broken foot have forced Sir Alex to reconsider his decision to put recruitment on hold.

Defoe could attract a bid from United should they find Tottenham's asking price for teammate Dimitar Berbatov too steep.
