Shanghai Shenhua poised to bid for United ace

Big-spending Chinese Premier League side Shanghai Shenhua are ready to make a bid to sign Manchester United striker Michael Owen, according to The Sun.

The Asian outfit have just appointed big-name signing Nicolas Anelka as their new head coach, and are eager to raid the Premier League for more stars this summer.

Shenhua are believed to have offered Didier Drogba £240,000 a week to move to China, and Owen would certainly be offered a lucrative contract, giving him the possibility of one last big pay day.

The former England international has had a torrid season, with most of it on the sidelines due to injury and being out-of-favour with Sir Alex Ferguson.

Owen’s contract expires this summer, and it is highly likely that the forward will be allowed to leave Old Trafford on a free transfer.
