I think it could be a decent move for both him and United, he wouldn't be playing every game as Ronney & Berbatov are the main front two, he would maybe used in league games against teams such as Wolves or European games against the 2 poorer teams in the group stages alongside a young'un such as Welbeck. This could give him chance to build up match fitness and stay injury free, don't forget he had a crap midfield behind him at Newcastle, in a decent team he could shine again and best of all he's free. Next season when Benzema has had enough of sitting on the bench he can make a move for him again.

Looks like he could be joining unless he fails his medical.


Michael Owen has arrived at Manchester United's Carrington training ground to undergo a full medical before completing his shock move to Old Trafford.

The striker has left Newcastle after his reported £120,000-a-week contract expired on Wednesday and he is now looking for a new club.

Hull City and Stoke had sounded their interest in the former Liverpool star, but Premier League champions United appear to have sensationally won the race for his signature.

Despite being a free signing, the move would represent a gamble for Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson given Owen's struggles with injuries throughout his career.

But reports suggest the 29-year-old successfully underwent an initial assessment on his troublesome knee on Thursday and has now travelled to Manchester to undergo an overall medical.

United have yet to officially comment on the story, but it is expected that Owen will become a Red Devils player before the weekend.

Ferguson is keen for attacking reinforcements after losing Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez this summer and Owen's proven goalscoring record is thought to be viewed as a solution.

Karim Benzema was United's primary target, but Real Madrid have had a big-money offer accepted for the Lyon striker and the Red Devils have therefore been forced to look elsewhere.

Owen's move is unlikely to go down well with Liverpool supporters after the striker spent eight years with the Reds having started his career at Anfield.

The 89-time England cap then moved to Real for one season in 2004 before joining Newcastle on a four-year deal.

OWEN BREAKS WRIST DURING CONTRACT SIGNING [url=http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/index2.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1879&pop=1&page=0&Itemid=26]http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/templates/ja_mercury/images/printButton [url=http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/index2.php?option=com_content&task=emailform&id=1879&itemid=26]http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/templates/ja_mercury/images/emailButton MICHAEL Owen has begun his Manchester United career by breaking his wrist in three places while attempting to sign his new contract.

'He's still not ready for a pen this size'

According to the club, Owen passed the medical and then punched the air in delight, slightly spraining his shoulder.

A club spokesman said: "We hoped he would recover quickly after the medical and could at least take part in the first half of the contact signing, but the fountain pen was just too heavy.

"His agent was able to move his hand to form a legally binding signature but then, when Sir Alex congratulated him, he just fell to bits and had to be shovelled-up and carried out in a couple of wheelbarrows."

Owen, currently recuperating in the Louis Saha Memorial Injury Suite, will meet the rest of his team-mates over the next few weeks as they fall apart during pre-season training.

Former Man United player Stephen Malley, said: "The gaffer feels Michael can supply something different as none of the lads have experience of wearing ankle casts on the continent. And he can also teach some of the younger strikers his agonised thigh-clutching technique."

Charlie Reeves, a United fan from Surrey, said: "I remember that goal he scored for England when he was 12. Marvellous. His cheeky little face made him look like one of the sprites from The Magic Flute.

"And now he is playing for my favourite team unless I start supporting Liverpool or Chelsea, or that one with all the nice Jewish people."
