Defour agent says Man Utd offer not imminent
Defour's agent has confirmed a number of English clubs are keen on his client, but has denied speculation that Manchester United are close to agreeing a deal.
The 22-year-old Belgium international midfielder is one of the most sought-after young players in Europe and is understood to be a long-term target of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Representative Paul Stefani told Calciomercato: "An imminent agreement with Manchester United? I can confirm that there are informal contacts with Italian, English, French, German and Spanish clubs, but nothing that suggests an imminent closure in a negotiation.
"Still there's not anything concrete so I cannot make names, I confirm that the player is followed by some big clubs.
"A departure in January? It's too early to tell about it, this depends on many things."
