Michael Owen To Make Man Utd Exit? Sunderland To Move For Robbie Keane

By Chris Wright

“Sunday Bloody Sunday – It really encapsulates the frustration of a Sunday doesn’t it?” Here’s the round up…


And in a puff of smoke, Little Micky was gone

Rumour No. 1: Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has run out of patience with Michael Owen and is willing to let the misfiring striker leave in the summer.

Owen has failed to impress at Old Trafford since joining United on a free transfer in the summer (despite scoring seven goals in only ten starts) and it seems the former Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle man will be looking for yet another new club come July.


A most unusual snowflake caught Robbie’s eye

Rumour No. 2: Sunderland are to table a cheeky little £9 million bid for Tottenham’s Robbie Keane before the transfer window slams shut tomorrow evening.

Should the deal for the Irishman go through, a transfer-chain-reaction could spring into action as Sunderland would then let Kenwyne Jones join Liverpool who, in turn, would allow Ryan Babel leave for Birmingham City.

The Best of the Rest: West Ham may try a sneaky loan bid for Robbie Keane if Sunderland’s offer is rejected by Tottenham.

Spurs’ front line is under siege from potential suitors as Fiorentina have now entered the race to sign Roman Pavlyuchenko on loan.

Sunderland are in talks to sign defender Nathaniel Clyne from Crystal Palace.

Yossi Benayoun is to quit Liverpool in the summer after becoming disillusioned with life at Anfield.

Manchester United will ‘never sell’ Wayne Rooney according to United chief exec David Gill.

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Fulham are competing for the signature of Egypt super-sub Mohamed Gedo.

Wolves have also given up on signing Hull City winger Stephen Hunt after seeing a £4 million bid rejected.

In further Wolves news, Mick McCarthy is to make a deadline day move for Sunderland’s Nyron Nosworthy.

Wigan Athletic look set to win the race for Crystal Palace wunderkind Victor Moses after their £2.5 million bid was accepted yesterday.

Tottenham are to turn to Man Utd’s Ben Foster in their search for goalkeeping cover after Asmir Begovic turned down a move to the club.

Arsenal are keeping tabs on Real Madrid’s young winger Pablo Sarabia, who is out of contract in the summer.

Thierry Henry will be allowed to leave Barcelona in the summer to make room for the signing of either Franck Ribery or David Villa.

Sporting Lisbon have officially announced the signing of Pedro Mendes from Glasgow Rangers in a £2.5 million deal.

    M Owen should step down a couple of leagues or keep to horse riding in the park on Sunday mornings.
    Robbie needs a team where he can play more forward, he’s a striker, not a midfield General. Robbie playing up front for Celtic would probably do him a favour. Owen has lost his vision & speed for the game.

    A few months ago, Fergie’s genius ascended to new levels with the signing of Mickey “Money” Owen. Wonder if the press’ll pull him up on how much of a shite decision it actually was to sign the diddy-man has-been?

    I totally agree with you Olivia!

    philando, it WAS a brilliant signing because it was FREE

    — if this is true, it’s bullshit. run our of bloody patience? what bt owen’s patience!? DID HE EVER GET TO EFFING PLAY!? 7 GOALS IN 10 GAMES! NOT EVEN STARTING HALF OF IT! LOSE PATIENCE MY ASS!

  7. Stephane Gerard says:

    >seven goals in only ten starts

    Obviously, the guy is a bum.
    Anything under 1 goal a game will make anyone lose his patience.

    Thank god Fergie has Berbatov to keep him calm.

  8. […] had suffered a severe groin injury that could have taken him out of play for 3 months. Coupled with last month’s rumour that Ferguson had ran out of patience with the player’s performance, many jumped to the […]
