Standard Liege’s Defour to be monitored by Man Utd

Manchester United will continue to keep tabs on Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour.

The Red Devils showed considerable interest in the 22-year old Belgium international during the summer transfer window and will now monitor him with plans of a January pursuit.

A source close to United confirmed to talkSPORT that the club will continue to watch the former Genk man.

"United were interested in Defour but there was no official bid. He wouldn't have moved this summer any way,” the source said.

"Beyond that, we will look in January and assess it then. United remain keen on him, for sure."
