Owen Hargreaves has confirmed that he wants to move to Manchester United.
United first attempted to sign Hargreaves last summer but their approach was rebuffed by Bayern.
Reports claim United will move again for Hargreaves at the end of the season, and the midfielder admits a move to the Premiership would be a dream.
“United are the only team I want to join,” he told the News of the World.
“They have invested so much time and energy in me.
“It’s very rare to see a transfer drag on like this.
“A football team is a puzzle with different pieces and and you need to find the right pieces and the right mix.
“United believe I am the final piece in their puzzle and that is an honour for me.”
Hargreaves admits his desire to join United has put him at odds with Bayern.
“It has been a difficult political situation. My position is very different and I couldn’t compare it to any other player,” said Hargreaves.
“It is not as though I am chasing money in Greece or Spain. There is a reason for me wanting to join United – I play for England and my family are from the north west.
“I love Bayern Munich. I have grown up in Germany but I’m the only England player never to have played in England and Manchester United want to take me home.”
