Fergie eyeing double swoop...

ON the eve of United's clash with FC Cophenhagen in the Champions League, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that United are still interested in signing Owen Hargreaves. The reds boss stated that last summer the club focused on two transfer targets, Michael Carrick and Bayern Munich's midfield man Hargreave, who is out at the moment injured.

The fact that Fergie has gone public re-confirming that United are still very much in the hunt for Hargreaves could further antagonise the German club who let it be known that the player was going nowhere last summmer.

On the upside, it will give the England international further encouragement about United's interest. Ferguson used similar tactics when Van Nistelrooy broke down just prior to his big money move to United a few seasons ago when he ruptured a knee ligament.

According to the British press, Fergie is also supposedly eyeing Wigan's left back Leighton Baines who scored that block-buster of a free-kick against United earlier this season. Baines looks useful but United already Heinze and Evra so I'd say this is an unlikely move.
