thumbnail Hello,

Manchester United are eyeing a shock £18 million move for Yoann Gourcuff after his summer switch to Lyon turned sour, according to the Daily Star.

Gourcuff, 24, moved to the Stade de Gerland outfit from Bordeaux in August but has already fallen out with head coach Claude Puel. This disturbance has alerted Sir Alex Ferguson to the reigning French Footballer of the Year.

Manchester City and Arsenal had been linked with his signature in the past and the Scot is weighing up whether to lodge a bid as early as January. Standard Liege's Steven Defour remains a target, though the classy France international tops United's wish list.
