Owen, another Ferguson magic?

My morning dose of newspaper reading this beatiful Saturday morning was greeted with a shock. Sir Alex signed Michael Owen!!! What a news to start the day. United fans across the world were still digesting the news of Karim Benzema’s decision to join Real Madrid and Frank Ribery revelation that he will only choose Real Madrid if Bayern Munich want to sell him.

The move came after the only clubs interested in signing the former Liverpool and Real Madrid striker appeared to be Stoke and Hull — both Premier League sides but teams for whom staying up was an achievement in itself. And out of sudden, Sir Alex shock the world again and he signed Owen.

Injury-prone England striker Owen, 29, a free agent after his Newcastle contract expired at the end of last month, was reported underwent a medical at a Manchester hospital yesterday before returning to United’s Carrington training ground to complete the shock deal.

This is not the first time Sir Alex bought a player who are at their dawn of their career, but exploiting the experience in the like of Laurent Blanc and Henrik Larsson to inject some stability in the team. The question now will Owen produce the same result as the two had provided before. Time will tell and hope he will as United is short of option in signing a big name in replacing Cristiano Ronaldo and Carloz Tevez. Hail, Sir Alex! Welcome Owen. We dare to dream in the Theatre of Dream...
