Interest Mounts In Manchester United Striker

By on November 17, 2011

Everton are considering a January loan bid for Manchester United’s English striker, Michael Owen according to reports.

The 31 year-old is currently out with another injury, this time to his thigh which will see him miss around 6 weeks of actions, yet Everton are in need of a goalscoring forward who will not cost millions.

The Merseyside club do not have money to spend, but David Moyes is in desperate need of additions to his strike force which has scored only 11 goals so far this season – one of the lowest goalscoring totals in the League.

Owen, despite his injuries does maintain that clinical edge which has made him such a success throughout his career, and although he only really plays in Carling Cup ties and the early stages of the Champions League, he had a fantastic goals to games ratio for United. Sir Alex Ferguson knows he can rely on Owen to score important goals when needed, but at the moment, Owen is rarely needed.

The striker was a boyhood Everton fan and recently admitted that he still has a soft spot for the club. David Moyes, the Everton manager, and Sir Alex Ferguson have a mutual respect for each other, and considering Manchester United’s sparing use of Owen, a loan move wouldn’t pose a problem for any party.
