Brighton set to sign Manchester United star

Speculation is currently huge that Michael Owen could be on his way to newly promoted Brighton this summerReports from across the country are suggesting that newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion are set to sign Manchester United striker Michael Owen with sources close to the South coast club claiming the 31 year old England international had been seen in the area this weekend.

Brighton won automatic promotion to the Championship this season and reports also claim that Owen has already met current manager Gustavo Poyet with a view to joining the Seagulls this summer.

Owen has featured very little for the Old Trafford outfit this season making the odd few appearances before injuries caused the player to sit out however should the striker remain fit then Brighton could be on the verge of one of the most historic transfer coups the country has ever seen.

Whilst there has been no news regarding wages it is likely that Owen would have to take a drop in income should this very interesting possibility become reality.
