Manchester United striker Michael Owen says he has briefly spoken to Sir Alex Ferguson about his future with the club, but the 31-year-old is waiting until after the Champions League final to have formal discussions.
“There’s been one chat,” Owen said of discussions with Ferguson, with the striker at the Manchester United media day today.
“I don’t want to speak to the manager prior to a Champions League final, he’s got much bigger things on his plate.
"Straight after the match [there will be talks].”
Owen has not had many starts for Manchester United this season, and while the Englishman has been a hero for the club, with a Champions League hat trick and a beautiful goal against bitter rivals Manchester City under his belt, this season Owen hasn’t been as much of a feature in the United squad.
The striker’s contract ends this summer, so Ferguson will either extend Owen's contract with Manchester United or allow him to leave on a free transfer. Owen has been connected to numerous clubs, including Everton and npower Championship club Derby, prompting David Moyes and Nigel Clough to deny rumours of an agreement.
