Owen ready to join Manchester United

Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves says he's willing to move to the
Premiership before the summer transfer window closes.


Manchester United have been linked with a move and Tottenham are long-standing admirers of his energetic style.

Canada-born Hargreaves, 25, said: "I said in the past it would be a great opportunity to play here but so far it hasn't worked out.

"There's not much more to say on the topic except I would love to receive the opportunity.

"I'm 25 and I have a contract at Bayern for the next four years but anything's possible. We've seen that in the past.

"The deadline is not until the 31st of August.

"I can't say what will happen between now and then but with the way the World Cup went for me, more English teams have seen what I can offer.

"Before I don't think teams had really seen me play on a regular basis.

"I'm at a fantastic club in Bayern Munich. They've won many things in the past.

"I have already played 40 games in the Champions League and that's something not every club in England can offer."

Owen Hargreaves desperate to join Manchester United

The England international won over his doubters with a splendid showing at the World Cup finals as he won the Man of the Match award for the penalty shoot-out defeat to Portugal.

Hargreaves has always expressed a desire to play in The Premiership and the opportunity to move to United is one he is itching to accept.

Sir Alex Ferguson has turned to the tenacious tackler, even though he is under contract until 2010, after it looks like he will lose the race for his top target - Lyon's Mahamadou Diarra.

The Mali international has expressed a desire to join Real Madrid as the Spanish giants seem certain to fight off the competition from Old Trafford.

"The offer from Manchester United is fantastic," Hargreaves told Bild.

"It's especially enticing for me as an England international, and you never know if the opportunity will present itself again.

"Now it's time for me to take the next step and develop myself further [as a player]."

"Herr [Dieter] Hoeness knows what a unique opportunity this is for me."

Bayern, however, will not let the Wales-born player leave cheaply and coach Felix Magath has already stressed his opposition to any deal.

"Selling Hargreaves has never been on our agenda," said Magath.

United have only signed Michael Carrick and back-up keeper Thomas Kuszczack this summer as they attempt to mount a serious Premiership challenge to champions Chelsea.

Manchester United are set to complete the signing of Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves today.

The Sun says the England midfielder is set to be unveiled at Old Trafford after agreeing a dream £13million move.

Hargreaves, 25, got his wish after revealing United manager Alex Ferguson had made him an offer he could not refuse.

And the Canadian-born star pleaded with his club to agree a deal and allow him to move to Old Trafford.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich insisted they did not want to lose Hargreaves and initially demanded £17million while United only offered £12m.

But once the player signalled his intentions to leave, the two clubs thrashed out a compromise figure.

Hargreaves is the defensive midfielder Fergie has been searching for.

The United boss switched his attentions to the England star after his World Cup heroics when Hargreaves was the only one of Sven Goran Eriksson's squad to emerge from the finals with any credit.
