Liverpool Target Defour Not Close To Any Deal With United

Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour's agent has confirmed that a number of English clubs are keen on him, but denied that Manchester United were close to agreeing a deal. The Belgian international midfielder is one of the most sought-after young players in Europe. The 22-year-old is understood to be a long-term target of United, but they are thought to be one of a number of Premier League clubs looking to land him. "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," Paul Stefani told Calciomercato. "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. "
