Michael Owen to be released from Manchester United
Michael Owen’s one year extension to the contract with Manchester United is due to expire in a few days. The 32 years old English footballer was transferred from Newcastle United to Manchester United in 2009. He was offered a two years contract at the new club. After its expiry, a one year extension was offered.
It turns out that it was his last contract with the club. Owen is pleased at his three years stay at the club. The injury prone star himself admits that his time at United is over. Owen could manage to play only one game in premier league this season.
Michael Owen reportedly admits that he was approached by the manager at their testimonial match on Tuesday to inform his that his contract would not be extended anymore.
Owen is expected to retire if he fails to get a reasonable offer for the next season.
