Owen Reportedly Offered Huge Newcastle Deal

England striker Michael Owen has been offered a £21M deal to commit his future to Newcastle United.


 Michael Owen – offerred huge deal by Newcastle?

But there’s some debate on how true this report is since it’s reported today in the Sun.

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has reportedly offered Michael Owen the biggest deal in the club’s history — a three-year contract worth £140K a week, according to The Sun.

The former Liverpool and Real Madrid star, whose current contract at Newcastle of around £110K a week runs out next summer.

Newcastle have been negotiating with Michael and Owen himself has said he expects some agreement to be reached shortly.

The proverbial Newcastle inside source said:

“It’s the best contract the club has ever offered and shows the owner is prepared to spend big when it comes to keeping the best players.”

“It’s also a massive vote of confidence in Kevin Keegan, who has always wanted Owen to stay.”

Well those words seem true enough, as we’re sure Mike Ashley has massive confidence in what Kevin has already achieved at Newcastle in a short seven months or so.

The offer comes after Newcastle held Manchester Untied 1-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

And news also that Ashley is also set to offer James Milner a new deal — after rejecting Aston Villa’s latest bid of £8M for the winger, where Kevin said both he and Ashley were not going to sell James to anybody.

Seems even like Kevin and the owner are in lock step on a lot of things.

Wouldn’t that be terrible news for the gossip press.

Comments welcome.

    Owen showed his worth again yesterday.
    Hope this contract saga is completed next week so we can all relax.
    Owen has conducted himself well through all this and never said or done anything out of line.

    I want him to commit to a good contract and then go on tobecome another Geordie legend.

    Seems Ash has got it together with all dealings and is coming up with the goods
