Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves admits that he could make a move to the MLS.
The 31-year-old has been out of action since leaving Manchester City in May, despite being linked with a number of English Premier League clubs.
Latest media reports have suggested that Hargreaves is pondering a move to the MLS, and the player admits such a scenario is possible.
“Yes. They want me to go and play over there,” the midfielder was quoted as saying in Daily Express.
“It is a big move, you have to decide do you want to make the move, a big change. There are so many things I could do there and it would be nice to spend time in Canada.
“I am fit but having focused so much on football since I was 15, I am just taking a step back.”
Owen Hargreaves began his professional career at Bayern Munich and spent seven seasons there before joining Manchester United in a €25 million deal.
However, his career at Old Trafford was plagued with injuries, preventing him from marking more than 28 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils.
Hargreaves signed for Manchester City in the summer of 2011, but could only make one Premier League appearance before being released from his contract.
While nobody doubts his football skills, there will not be too many clubs willing to take a gamble with the player who made just four league appearances over the last four seasons.
