This is a funny one because it seems to return every year.
Yup, the obligatory Michael Owen link.
I forget who said, I think it was in an article comment or forum post (sorry, my memory isn`t up to much!) but they reckon Owen had a visit to Villa last week. Could be total pie in the sky.
However, the 32-year-old is available on a free and has been talking things up recently.
He has tweeted saying he would only move to another Premiership Club and dropping down the divisions isn`t of interest to him.
'If a good opportunity doesn`t come my way then so be it. At this stage of my career it has to be something that I`m going to enjoy doing,'
'I know I can still bang them in at the top level. I proved that nearly every time I played for Manchester United. At 32, still got a few years in me.'
As Yak at Vital Everton said
"5 Premier League goals for Manchester United in three years might not make the headlines, but overall he has scored 17 goals from 18 starts (he has also made 34 sub appearances)."
Owen has also said on Twitter he is getting closer to finding a new club and "Had a good deal of interest but just need to pick right! Can't wait to get going again.'
So... worth it? When fit, he knows where the goal is, could bring great experience to pass on to the younger strikers, is available on a free and is still only 32.
It would surely have to be a pay as you play type of deal due to the injury situation though?
Would you take Owen on pay as you play?
