Agent reveals Man Utd boss Ferguson still wants Defour

The agent of Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour admits Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a big fan of the Belgian. Defour has been mooted as a replacement at United for the retired Paul Scholes.

Paul Stefani told Calciomercatoweb.it: "Manchester United? Ferguson admires him very much and when the player was injured he sent a letter to him as encouragement.

"His brother (Martin Ferguson) came to see him twice after he recovered from injury.

"A preference?

"Who would not like to play for a club like United, but Juventus and AC Milan are also great teams. He has no preference."
