Manchester United striker Michael Owen weighs up transfer options

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid forward, Michael Owen, has hinted that he could be on his way out of Old Trafford next summer in the search of more regular football.

Owen has been criticised in recent months amid claims that he is happy to sit back and pick up his py cheques on the sidelines in the waning days of his career.

However, the Red Devil has hit back, saying: “I’m not content if I’m not playing and I don’t want anybody to think that. I get criticised a lot by people who say I don’t play, but I pick my money up. I’m not proud of that fact. I want to play all the time.”

The 31 year-old scored twice in Tuesday’s 3-0 Carling Cup win over Leeds United, and states that he’s desperate for more.

Owen added: “I’ve got a few years left and I would love them to be at Manchester United. For that to happen, I would need to be involved because the manager would not want me if I was not part of the squad.”
