    Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour has revealed he could be ready to take the next step in his career amid interest from Manchester United.

    Belgium international Defour, 22, is one of the most highly-rated young talents in his homeland and news emerged of United's interest when Sir Alex Ferguson sent the player a letter after he suffered a broken foot late last year.

    Defour has now recovered his fitness and reports of a switch to the Premier League are rife, with Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson having scouted the player in recent weeks, and he has suggested he could now be ready to move on.

    "I know that Manchester United are monitoring me, but there hasn't been any contact," Defour told Belgian TV programme Extra Time. "I've been sidelined for quite a while due to the injury, but I'm playing at a high level again.

    "If everything goes well and I continue playing as I am, there is a better chance of me leaving than there was at the start of the season.

    "I've had the opportunity to leave Standard on a couple of occasions, but I loved the club too much to leave. However, I'm 22 years old now and I also have to think about myself. There comes a time when you just have to make the next step in your career, regardless of your feeling for the club."

    On his injury, he added: "The pain is much less severe than it was at the beginning of the season. The pain will eventually disappear altogether, but I have to do my exercises every day and work hard."

    Defour's agent, Paul Stefani, said recently that a January move is a "possibility".

    Manchester United 3 - 2 Wolverhampton ( Carling Cup)

    Bebe (56)
    Park (70)
    Hernandez (90)

    Elokobi (60)
    Foley (76)



    Javier Hernandez climbed off the bench to score a brilliant goal as Manchester United claimed a 3-2 win over Wolves in the fourth round of the Carling Cup.

    On two occasions Wolves pegged United back, with George Elokobi and Kevin Foley cancelling out strikes from debutant Bebe and Park Ji Sung, but the visitors were undone by the brilliance of Hernandez.


    United line up- Amos,Fabio,Brown,Smalling,Evans,Gibson,Park,Oberta n,Bebe,Obertan,Macheda.
    Bebe, the player famously signed by Sir Alex Ferguson without the Scot having seen him play, was handed his full debut and justified his place with a goal. He looked a little ungainly at times as United disappointed in the first half, but they were far more focused after the restart and Federico Macheda went close with a curling effort and Darron Gibson drilled a free kick straight at Wayne Hennessey.

    Wolves were not without their chances and Sylvain Ebanks-Blake drilled a shot at Ben Amos, but United broke in rapid fashion and Bebe's cross-shot looped up off Elokobi and over the line.

    Wolves produced an impressive response and were level on the hour as Elokobi atoned for his part in United's goal by climbing high and powering a header from six yards past Amos.

    Stephen Hunt and Steven Fletcher passed up presentable chances for Wolves and they were made to pay on 70 minutes as Park Ji-sung drove into the box before curling a left-foot shot beyond Hennessey.

    Once again Wolves responded, as Foley stroked home following Fletcher's cheeky backheel. But Ferguson turned to Hernandez and he added another goal to his growing scrapbook when gliding through tackles and powering his shot through Hennessey.

    Pep Guardiola Likely To Suceed SAF ?

    Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola has emerged as the favorite to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson when the Scot steps down at Manchester United.

    The Spanish media suggested Ferguson recommended Guardiola for the United board because of his style of play.

    Guardiola, 39, still has not extended his contact which is due to expire next summer and he is believed to have a negative relationship with the Catalan club's president Sandro Rossell.

    Guardiola's agent Jose Maria Orobigt has confirmed that his client has received an offer from a top European club, which is believed to be United.

    Other candidates for the job include Real Madrid manager Josť Mourinho, former Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill and Everton manager David Moyes.

    Manchester United 2-0 Tottenham Hotspurs



    Nani scored a controversial second goal as Manchester United continued their fine record against Tottenham.

    Tottenham keeper Heurelho Gomes rolled the ball out for a free-kick after Nani had clearly handled the ball but the United player had not been penalised.

    Nani then struck the ball into an empty net, much to the Spurs players' fury.

    Nemanja Vidic had earlier headed home a free-kick from Nani, who also hit the woodwork, as United extended their unbeaten run against Spurs to 26 games.

    Tottenham's last win at Old Trafford remains the 1-0 victory in December 1989, when Gary Lineker struck the winner.

    Spurs, who stay fifth in the table but are now 10 points behind leaders Chelsea, have not kept a clean sheet in the league since the opening day of the season.

    And, even more worryingly, the influential Rafael Van der Vaart limped off with a tight hamstring in the latter stages.

    But there was plenty to encourage manager Harry Redknapp as he tries to mould a team capable of challenging for the title.

    Tottenham did play plenty of attractive football - with Van der Vaart striking the woodwork - and more than matched United for long periods of the contest.

    The home team have been wasteful at times this season, dropping six points from winning positions, including a 2-2 draw against West Brom after leading 2-0.

    But after Nani's controversial goal was allowed to stand by referee Mark Clattenburg in the final minutes, United were able to close out the game with relative ease and remain third in the table, five points behind Chelsea.

    United might have taken the lead inside two minutes when a crisp long-range strike from Ji-Sung Park smashed into the base of the post with Gomes well beaten.

    Tottenham responded and Van der Vaart, who frequently dropped deep and found space in dangerous areas, crashed his thunderous left-foot strike against the United woodwork after eight minutes.

    Edwin van der Sar turned 40 on Friday but there was nothing wrong with his reflexes as he stopped a powerful strike from Luka Modric, while Van der Vaart missed with another effort from distance.

    Robbie Keane made his second Premier League start of the season for Spurs as Peter Crouch dropped to the bench, and with Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon out wide, the visiting team were extremely mobile across their front line.

    However, for all their attractive attacking football, Tottenham often lacked a killer final ball, while United did occasionally prise open their opponents' defence.

    Park shot wide after cutting inside, Rafael da Silva ended a surging run with a poor finish, and Gomes kept out a low strike from former Spurs striker Dimitar Berbatov, who has now gone six games without scoring.

    But for all that there was to admire from both sides, the opening goal came via Vidic's thudding header after Spurs completely failed to pick up the defender as Nani swung in a free-kick from a wide area.

    Bale had a relatively quiet match but did catch the eye with one electric run into the United area 10 minutes after the restart before shooting narrowly wide.

    Spurs continued to create some promising positions but it was becoming increasingly evident that they were missing the extra option that a target man would provide, and Roman Pavlyuchenko replaced Keane after 61 minutes.

    The substitute struck the side netting from 20 yards and Van der Sar denied Van der Vaart as the London side continued to press.

    Javier Hernandez went close for United, while Nani thought he should have been awarded a penalty seconds before he scored his controversial goal.

    The Portugal international fell in the box and appealed for a spot-kick but, despite clearly handling the ball as he went down, he was not penalised by Clattenburg.

    Gomes obviously thought differently and rolled the ball out as though his team had been given a free-kick, and he was punished when Nani slotted the ball home as the bewildered Spurs keeper looked on.

    Arguments ensued, first between the United players and the assistant referee when it appeared he had ruled out the goal, and then between the Tottenham players and Clattenburg when the referee overruled his colleague.

    Play eventually resumed, but with only six minutes remaining there was too little time for Tottenham to recover a two-goal deficit.

    Manchester United headed out to Turkey on Champions League duty on Monday without central defender Rio Ferdinand.

    There was no immediate word on why Ferdinand was not in the 20-strong squad, but manager Alex Ferguson is known to be eager to rest the player who has long-standing back problems which can be brought on by long flights.

    Solskjaer makes Molde move



    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been confirmed as the new manager of Molde after leaving his role as reserve-team boss at Manchester United.

    The move back to his native Norway ends Solskjaer's 14-year spell at Old Trafford.
    Solskjaer, who will take charge of Molde in January, replaces former Manchester Citystriker Uwe Rosler at the Norwegian outfit.

    The 37-year-old's time at Old Trafford will forever be remembered for the

    dramatic injury-time winner in the 1999 Champions League final against

    Bayern Munich.
    It was one of 126 goals in 366 appearances for United following his bargain £1.5million arrival from Molde in 1996.

    After his playing career was ended by a persistent knee injury in 2007, Solskjaer was offered the chance to become reserve-team boss as part of a

    coaching shake-up that saw the Norwegian work alongside Warren Joyce.
    Ferguson was sad to see Solskjaer leave the club, but paid tribute to his impact at Old Trafford.

    "Ole has had a good period with our reserve team, which has given him a

    foundation to start somewhere else," said Ferguson.

    "He feels it is time he went back to Norway, which also helps his family

    situation.

    Fantastic servant

    "He has been a fantastic servant to us and I am sure he will do well.
    "He has worked with some really good young players in our reserve team and has contributed to their development.

    "Once he gets experience of managing a club in its own right who knows where it will take him?

    "Molde is a very progressive club in Norwegian football, so this is a good

    start for him."

    Ferguson admits he has yet to decide who will replace Solskjaer as reserve-team coach with reports linking Gary Neville as a possible replacement.

    "I have no idea who takes over the reserves," added Ferguson. "We will just leave it at the moment."
