    Liked this guy when i've seen him in Europe. Him and Fellaini ran the show against someone a few seasons back for Standard Liege. We've got good connections in Belgium too.

    Unbelievable how many rumours the Daily Mirror have produced, still got a lot right, but too many completely wrong.

    If the Sun is not the Worst, i demand a recount :p

    Defour is good player but I do not know if he's the player that club needs. But considering that SAF is acting the same way that he acted with the Ruud (regarding their injury before join the club) I see the Belgian in OT in January.

    We have scouted Defour acccording to our mate @FreddieBoswell7, this is looking possible now Ozil seems to be off to Barca for some crazy reason.

    Defour is an all round midfielder in my opinion, he seems to be really good attacking wise but is also really good defensive wise too. I'm basing this on a few games i've seen him play in Europe by the way. Remided me a bit of Scholes to be honest except he's good at tackling. I think he's had a few injuries recently, perhaps one of the reasons a lot of clubs are holding back in getting him.

    He missed the two group games against Arsenal last season. I'm basing my opinion of him on European games before last season. One of the games, he must have been 19/20 playing alongside Fellaini, they dominated the game against Liverpool still only managed a draw though, Fellaini got the Everton move of the back of it but Defour and the other promising Standard Liege youngster Witsel were left behind. Both are too good to be playing in Belgium and need to move on now.

    IF we sign someone it will be someone like Defour i think..Good Midfielder with a good eye for a pass, similar to Carrick imo, bit better going forward i think.

    and if we're loaning out Cleverley, i think very good chance we'll see a CM signed.

    i think it'd be wrong to judge Witsel based on that one incident though...i thought he was not such a dirty player, rated very highly like Defour, more attacking than Defour though i believe

    if the scousers are hoping to replace Masch with Defour they're stupid...anyway they'll be going for cheap midfielders i'm sure, won't be surprised if they buy M. Diarra or someone in his price range

    Defour is nothing like Mascherano, unless he's changed a lot since I seen him, he was a more all-round midfielder in my opinion. Liked to get forward as well as defend.

    Ninis rumours also stoked back up today. Defour and Ninis will be good replacements for Scholes and Hargo. CM is somewhere we will need to strengthen next summer.
