Hargreaves Set To Join
Bayern Munich president Franz Beckenbauer announced that Owen Hargreaves would leave the club.
United have been chasing the 26-year-old midfielder since last summer but so far Bayern refused to sell him. However, after a hugely disappointing season the Bavarians start to build a new team and they welcome the kind of money they will receive from this deal.
Hargreaves, best performer of England's last World Cup campaign is reported to join for about £17 million.
'Owen is leaving,' Beckenbauer told Germany's DSF sports television network. 'That was the player's wish. It's a good match and it's also a good deal financially.'
The Kaiser did not disclose the financial details but said that the price was in the range of the reported amount.
