United star offered contract reprieve

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are to give Owen Hargreaves a contract extension at the end of the season, despite the midfielder going through two failed comebacks from injury this season, according to the Daily Mail.

Hargreaves has suffered hamstring and shoulder injuries while playing for Manchester United this season, and also has ongoing knee problems, and with the midfielder’s contract running out this summer, it looked likely that Ferguson might not renew it.


Hargreaves was purchased by Sir Alex Ferguson for £19 million in 2007 from Bayern Munich. Despite great expectations being placed on the 30 year old, he has only made 29 appearances for Manchester United over the past three years.

The Daily Mail is reporting that a deal will likely be discussed soon so that should Ferguson decide to sell Hargreaves, he will at least be able to recoup some of the money he outlayed on the England international.

Hargreaves is due to return for United in two weeks, and should his injuries subside he will be an integral part to the season run in for the title leaders. His performance in the final games for Manchester United will no doubt have a bearing on any decision to sign him.
