Hargreaves Out For The Season

Recommended Posts

Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves will miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery.The 27-year-old underwent surgery on his right knee on Monday and a further operation is planned on the England player's left knee in a fortnight.He has been plagued by a tendinitis problem for almost two years."Hopefully this has got to the bottom of it and we'll get him back fit for next season," said United boss Sir Alex Ferguson of his £18m midfielder.He has been restricted to just 37 appearances for United since his move from Bayern Munich in July 2007.The decision to operate came after Hargreaves visited the renowned specialist Dr Richard Steadman, who is based in Colorado. The most famous knee surgeon in the world, Steadman saved England striker Alan Shearer's football career in 2000 and has also operated on Newcastle striker Michael Owen and former United forward Ruud van Nistelrooy.Canadian-born Hargreaves missed the start of the 2007/08 season only to return after Christmas to play a prominent role in United's Champions League and Premier League triumphs.However, the tendonitis flared up again in pre-season and he has made only three appearances during this campaign.

Not much to be said, he would be a first choice midfielder for me when he's fit. Hopefully this Surgery will sort him out.

speculation on thegame podcast last night united might be in for Diarra in janwould make sense with him not being cuptied for the CL and probably be quite cheap as he has a champs league club release clause

unfortunate to be honest, But as Fergie says if this clear up his injury problems 4 good then its for the best this steadman guys got a good track record so if he can't sort it out no one can.

Seen.Speaking of surgery, Thomas Rosicky went under the knife today in Germany also. There is no word as to when he will return.

12/11/2008 08:05Sir Alex Wants Xavi To Be His Midfield X FactorSir Alex Ferguson reportedly wants Xavi Hernández to anchor the midfield of the good ship Manchester United...Sir Alex Wants Xavi To Be His Midfield X FactorThe Daily Star is reporting that Barcelona midfielder Xavi is at the forefront of Sir Alex Ferguson's transfer musings.Xavi told his current club's official website recently, "My dream is to retire at Barça," but financial obstacles appear to be diminishing the prospect of that happening, despite the player having spent his enture career at Camp Nou.Although the 28-year-old's contract doesn't expire till 2010, boss Pep Guardiola is known to be desperate to tie him down before the likes of the elite Premier League clubs start bombarding his agent with speculative phonecalls and boxes of chocolates.As Barça sat down for initial contract talks with Xavi recently, he reportedly balked at the €7 million plus add-ons they put on the table. He wants a massive payday now that he's at an optimum footballing age and, thus, he might seek it elsewhere and his club may cash in.Now, Fergie's apparently ready to step in and slash out on Euro 2008's player of the tournament. Owen Hargreaves is out for the rest of the season and may never be a long-term solution at Old Trafford, whilst Paul Scholes has been spotted shopping for porch rockers.Ivan Corretja, Xavi's agent, is quoted as saying, "We have not been able to solve the situation at Barcelona, despite some months of negotiations. We feel he should be offered a deal which reflects his performances on the pitch."Everybody at Barcelona knows that there are some big European clubs interested in Xavi, particularly in England at the moment, and we will not allow this to go on forever.''Sir Alex will surely be watching the Xavi contract situation very closely in the coming weeks.
sh*t could very well be possible... would love to see him come to the prem.
