Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has officially signed for Manchester United.
The player was available on a free contract.
Michael Owen’s agents sent out a brochure about the player to all Premier League managers and it seems that Alex Ferguson feels that the former Liverpool man may be just what he needs.
Michael Owen left Liverpool for Real Madrid without playing a single game under new manager Rafa Benitez in a desire to win trophies but the move turned disastrous as the player lost his England place and failed to land a single honour since – as he watched Liverpool go on to win a 5th European cup.
Rafa Benitez was presented with an opportunity to bring Owen back from Spain, but decided to wait until the summer to capture Fernando Torres instead.
Owen played 297 times for Liverpool.
