I don't ken if the Benzema deal is done for sure but I've seen lots of articles saying it has and 1 on goal.com I think talking about the Lyon chairman saying money was the key , Real could pay him more.
Sky Sports have said that he has signed a 6 year contract, but that is subject to him passing a medical so the deal isnt official yet.

He has signed, but the deal isnt complete.
Owen To United

Man City Had A Bid Rejected For Terry
Owen is set to go through a medical today to complete his move to Man Utd. He could be a decent striker as _Man_u_barmy_army_ said as a supersub other something like that. He is free....
It's gone through; owen has signed. I'm not ecstatic but i'm pleased, you can't have three £30 mil strikers and he and Rooney used to look quite good for England so im pleased. But can we please sign up a left footed left winger of David Silvas ilk, albeit without the affection for Real Madrid.

david silva would never go to utd because if utd bidded the real would bid and silva would snub them like benzema
benzema is an ass!
owen will be new solskjaer, wonder sub

Hence why i said "of David Silvas ilk, albeit without the affection for Real Madrid"
weird shite happening.

i dont really question united for going for owen.

but i question owen's loyalty etc. he is a scouse, played for liverpool. that he himself agreed to join is strange.

i mean ince did it once. i mean its not like you wouldnt try to sign a good player, its upto the player to show some loyalty etc, considering the rivarly etc.

never the less, owen is good, 29 he should still have the body for it. but he is still past it in a way.

as i said before somewhere, he wont loose some of his qualities. its not like he wont be able to finish. its just a matter of if he can stay fit etc.

good back up player? yes. because he has loads of experience from everywhere. so if he stays fit he can have an impact.

it's still a bit of a "gamble".

BUT if you look at it, united have 2 great strikers in rooney and berbatov. and owen as backup isnt that bad now is it?

plus hopefully some of the youngsters will grow into the next season as well.

also i still think we need another winger so we dont have to play rooney as one. i would love to see Young or RIbery. even though Ribery is the most unlikely as he has said he wants to only go to madrid.

and with Villa wont let go of their players that easily at all so Young isnt the most realistic target. But i wouldnt mind if united did spend money on Young.

Owen's experience could be beneficial to united youngsters, and as the interview with him went he has more pro's than con's, I agree with you it is a risk. But isn't that what sir alex does? With Wellbeck and Macheda coming in in case anyone gets injured.

One thing I picked up from some guys blog, if owen is a flop he won't be an expensive flop, as there is no transfer fee, the wages are less than what Newcastle had and is largely based on incentives. So it has little risk, other than to sir alex's credibility and United's performances if 2 of the 3 don't perform. Which will mean Berbatov has to pull up his socks and do a bit of graft. Which I expect him to get more settled but not into full rythem yet.
yeh i know its always a risk with any transfer. but of course he is more of a "proven" striker.

but in the end its still about the injuries and fitness.

i mean saha is a world class player, but his injuries hasnt helped him for an example.

so its more of a hope that he stays fit because he is proven as a striker at any stage, and at 29 you still expect a player to have everything physically and mentally for another at least 2 years anyways.

i mean owen isnt a straight replacement for anyone anyways. he is more of a backup striker that could contribute something.
he will do good, and don't forget he has a had an extremely thorough medical, his loyalty isn't in question, it was rather man utd in champ league chance of silverware that he desires or hull/stoke who will be battling for relegation. its a no brainer, hes an everton fan anyway not a liverpool fan.

welbeck and macheda will feature a lot more in next season aswell.

with the wing being hopefull contested by tosic.

young would be senstional buy, though it is extremely unlikely he will be allowed join by o'neill. carlos eduardo would be a promising buy, from what little i have seen of him.
or more controversialy joe cole he is a very skilled player, can make chances and is english
At least Man U will probably have better doctors to look after him. After all the big names to be linked with Man U , Owen was a sudden shock but could turn out to be a great piece of business. Can't be any worse than Hargreaves, injury wise.

With the £80 million still left , Sir Alex could buy Newcastle Utd.

I keep forgetting Sunderland have some cash to splash too. Hopefully more exciting transfers soon , preferably heading to Falkirk.
I can tell you for a fact he isnt an everton fan. Im not saying he's a liverpool fan, not through and through atleast. I agree his loyalty isnt a question for united, for him its a chance to really make an impression and get his career back on track.

But even after all his time at newcastle, he'll find it hard to deal with the liverpool fans reaction the first time he has to play them, especially at anfield.

i disagree with that, thing with owen hargreaves is that his knees are fucked up.

while m.owen is just injury prone and has gotten a few different injuries in the past few years.
