Caution: Low Flying Toy Alert
England and Bayern Munich superstar midfielder (well he is now, isn't he England fans) Owen Hargreaves is set to demand! a move from the German club, with his heart seemingly set on Manchester United.
Numerous websites and news companies have reported that Sir Alex has put in a firm offer with Bayern which was rejected pretty much on the spot. Ze German's are hoping to keep hold of Owen, who impressed both in the World Cup and in this weeks 4-0 tonking of the supposed European Champions.
Not sure if he was maybe getting ahead of himself, or was mis-quoted in the press about demanding to leave. Certainly on Wednesday night after an impressive game, he back-tracked and went to the standard phraseology of footballers wanting to leave.
'Obviously I'm still a Bayern Munich player.
'There's a lot been said but what will happen in the future I don't really know myself.'
Nice one Owen, we know what you mean ;-)
