Owen hoping for new United deal

Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Michael Owen is hoping for a new deal when his contract expires in the summer.

However the former England international, who is keen to face Chelsea in the Champions League on Wednesday, remains in the dark regarding manager Sir Alex Ferguson's thoughts.

Owen, with 13 goals to his credit from 37 appearances, said: "I am not sure about my future yet - my contract expires at the end of this season."

He added: "I've made no secret that, in an ideal world, I would extend my stay. I would love to play here for longer but I will just wait and see what the club say. We've not held any talks yet."

United go into the quarter-final first leg match against Carlo Ancelotti's side anxious to end a dreadful run of results at Stamford Bridge. They have not won in 10 games at the ground - losing 2-1 this season - but Owen believes their luck could be about to change.

United go into the match on the back of a 4-2 win against West Ham and Owen said: "Since I've been at the club the games at Stamford Bridge have been odd. We don't get outplayed there, that's for sure.

"Unfortunately we haven't had many good results, though. I'm sure our luck will change at some point.

"In the league last month we were 1-0 up and put on one of the finest displays of football Stamford Bridge has probably seen from a visiting team. I don't think many teams go to Chelsea and play like that.

"Then they got back into the game from nothing, really. Maybe we were a little guilty of contributing to our own downfall but we won't let that happen again."
