Owen Hargreaves is set to hold talks with Bayern Munich regarding his future with the club.
The Canadian-born midfielder has been linked with a move to Manchester United after he revealed he had received an offer from the Premiership outfit.
“To play (for Manchester United) is a great opportunity and I would be happy if I got that chance,” Hargreaves stated.
Bayern insist the England international is not for sale, but Hargreaves’s agent Roman Grill believes the club may should discuss the situation with the player.
“It is not a question of whether the club want to discuss a transfer, it is obvious that they need players like Owen and they don’t want him to leave, but on the other hand, the player wants to talk,” said Grill.
“Owen wants to tell the club how he sees his future.
“Owen has never had any problems with Bayern and has been here for nine years now without any complaints.
“The time has now come to evaluate where he is in his career.
“Maybe later (Thursday), he will talk with the coach Felix Magath and see how he views things.
“As he has already said, Owen sees this (United offer) as an excellent opportunity.”
