RedKnapp Thinks Owen Will Sign For Newcastle

Harry Redknapp is giving some very interesting interviews before our game with Spurs at St. James’ Park tomorrow, and today he has said he thinks Michael Owen will sign for Newcastle United, rather than test the water in the January transfer window, when he would be able to talk to other interested clubs, one of which would probably be Spurs.

Redknapp is just one of many managers who are monitoring Michael Owen’s situation and if there is no agreement, he would be interested in trying to get Michael:

“He’s still got plenty of life and plenty of goals in him.”

“He will be a great free transfer for somebody if he doesn’t sign for Newcastle.”

“But I think there is every chance he will stay at Newcastle because it’s a great club.”

Joe Kinnear talked to Michael last Tuesday, and Joe thinks there is a 60-40 chance that Michael will stay on Tyneside, where he appears to be very happy with his young family.

Joe revealed he had asked Michael that if he could get a Newcastle contract that would more or less guarantee that Michael could finish his career at Newcastle, what would he think. And Michael told Joe that would be great.

It would be good news indeed if Michael reports he has signed the contract before tomorrow’s game, but we’ll not be greedy, and we are also prepared to wait. 😀

Comments welcome.

    Regarding Chris’ comment, you can obviously tell he is too young to understand football
