Owen to Man United?

Apparently Michael Owen's representitives are in talks with officials in Old Trafford regarding Michael signing for United. This is a very interesting development, and somewhat surprizing for Ferguson who looks like he's willing to gamble on a player who many Premiership managers weren't willing to risk signing.
Owen has had a number of injury riddled seaons at Newcastle, but to be honest, he was always a threat when fit.
Ferguson has been on the look out for a new striker after the departures as Carlos Tevez and Cristiano Ronaldo. He had hoped on bringing French internationals Karim Benzema and Franck Ribery to Manchester, but Real Madrid seem to have won the race for both their signatures.
Owen could be a massive hit with United, if he remains fit, but that is something that may be beyond him.
On the streets of Manchester earlier one local Unted fan gave this reaction. "He's Shit". A bit extreme, but maybe that gentleman is speaking the truth. Hull City were chasing hard to bring Owen to the KC Stadium. A Hull fan (pictured) gave this reaction when he heard that his club may have lost out on Owen's services; "Ah Shit!".
We'll see what the outcome is and where Michael Owen will be playing his football next season.
