Bayern Munich midfielder Owen Hargreaves has revealed his dismay at reports claiming that his value has hit £25 million.
Manchester United failed in their attempts to sign Hargreaves last summer with Bayern refusing to sell him. However, the German club have now conceded that they might be prepared to sell if United match their valuation of £25m.
“It is a lot of money they are talking about,” Hargreaves told The Sun.
“Is it even realistic? But football is a crazy world and ridiculous sums are paid.
“Right now, I don’t want to think about that. I just want to think about playing football, working hard and doing well.
“All the other things will take care of themselves – it is not down to me.”
Hargreaves, who is currently recovering from a broken leg, is hoping to return to action as soon as possible.
“Everything will fall into place but at the moment I have other priorities and that is to get healthy. I just want to come back and play football,” concluded Hargreaves.
