Michael Carrick is happy Owen Hargreaves is close to completing a move to Manchester United.

Bayern Munich have confirmed the midfielder will be allowed to leave the club in the summer after accepting a £17million bid.

Hargreaves is expected to join Premiership champions United and reports claim only a medical is holding up completion of the deal.

His impending arrival at Old Trafford will end a lengthy chase for Sir Alex Ferguson, who tried to sign the England international after last summer's World Cup.

He will add bite to the United midfield and Carrick expects his international colleague to enhance the competition for places.

Though Carrick's own position in the side will be under threat by the acquisition of Hargreaves, he is looking forward to the Canadian-born battler's arrival.

"We are at the biggest club in the world and we want the best players," said Carrick.

"World-class players are going to strengthen you and Owen is a top player.

"We need a big squad. That has been proved this season when you are fighting on all fronts."
