In a bid to cure his injury problems once and for all, Owen Hargreaves is reportedly set to have an operation that will keep him out of the team for six months!

“The doctors hoped the injections would help the problem but everyone has accepted now it needs another approach,” says ‘a source’. “Owen has been very down but is hopeful this will help the problem in the long term. United paid a lot of money for Owen so there is pressure for him to do well. But his injury has stopped him showing what he can do.”
