Man Utd ponder late bid for Standard Liege ace Defour
Skysports.com says United are weighing up a move for long-term target Defour.
The Standard Liege midfielder has attracted the interest of United in the past with United boss Alex Ferguson even sending a letter to the player last year to wish him a speedy recovery after he suffered a serious foot injury.
A number of clubs across Europe including Liverpool have been credited with an interest in Defour, but United are keen to lure him to Old Trafford.
In a bid to steal a march on their rivals United could step up their interest in the Belgian international before the close of the transfer window.
