Sir Alex Ferguson claimed that Owen Hargreaves could return as early as the beginning of September which would be a glorious surprise. The 28-year-old midfielder played only three games for United last season because of a chronic knee injury and there were rumours that setbacks after the operations he had undergone would keep him out of action until January.

However, Fergie had good news for us: ‘He’s completing his rehab in America.

‘We`re happy with his rehab and we`re in complete control of that. We`re roughly looking at the beginning of September for him, depending on how he reacts and how he progresses.’


A cliché, yes, but it would be like a new signing. He was desperately missed last season and would add much-needed steel and bite to our midfield.
