Is it January already? Must be as earlier in the week we were linked with Wigan's Emile Heskey and now we are being linked with ...... I do like this one.... Newcastle United's Michael Owen.
World class striker at Villa? And then the Heskey link would also make perfect sense as Owen used to feed very nicely off Heskey's work for England. I know there is just one big IF linked to this though, the injury record. Owen, who seems to have been around forever, is still only 28 (29 in December) and if fit is a match for any striker in the world. That is the thing though, IF fit. Is it worth the gamble? I'd pay his taxi fair down personally, but then again, I'm not the geezer who has to pay his wages...!
The Sun... hmmm .... have an article saying Villa will pay what it takes to get the England and former Liverpool and Real Madrid striker to Villa Park.
Newcastle have apparently offered him a new deal but that deal seems to have been on the table for a very long time and Owen hasn't taken them up on it and he could walk away on a free next summer, so surely they'll want to cash in on him in January rather than risk losing their asset for nothing at the end of the season, especially when you consider they paid around £17 million for him. Owen can't be happy at the fact Joe Kinnear (LOL, JOE KINNEAR!!!!) has kept him on the bench since his return from injury.
The Sun claim Villa have a good chance because 'unlike Chelsea, Man United and Arsenal, Villa could guarantee Owen a regular starting place.'
Liverpool (1996-2004) 216 appearances and 118 goals.
Real Madrid (2004-2005) 35 appearances, 13 goals.
Newcastle (2005- ) 51 appearances, 21 goals.
England - 1998 onward - 89 appearances, 40 goals.
