United 'set to sign' Hargreaves...

According to the latest news on the transfer grapevine United could be about to sign Owen Hargreaves. Up and until this week Bayern have said the player is going nowhere, however, their position has softened with the club stating that if they can replace Hargreaves then they'd consider selling him.

The Mail on Sunday is claiming that the Reds will sign the player for £12m this January when the transfer window opens. Following United's win 3-0 over Villa on Saturday Fergie said: "We are waiting to see about it.
"Chief executive David Gill is always in touch with them because of the G14 and he sees Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge quite regularly, so we will see."

It was thought any deal for the 25-year-old star would have to wait until the summer because of Bayern's Champions league commitments. IF they deal goes through it will be a massive boost in terms of the Reds chances of winning some silverware this season.

Personally I can see United paying a lot more than £12m, because we always pay over the odds, but all Reds fans will be hoping that the deal is completed in January.
