SkySports.com earlier reported that Manchester United were ready to move in on long-term target Steven Defour.
The Standard Liege midfielder who suffered a serious foot injury last season even got a letter from Sir Alex Ferguson who wished the player a speedy recovery.
The last time Ferguson sent a player a letter like that he went on to sign the player. That player was Ruud van Nistelrooy who scored 150 goals in 219 appearances!
Defour has already expressed his desire to play in the English Premier League which would make it even easier for Manchester United to sign him. People are saying that he would be a great replacement for Owen Hargreaves.
