Michael Owen haas admitted he may have to leave Real Madrid because the Bernabeu side will be strengthened after a second season without winning a trophy.

The England striker hinted that a return to England may be on the cards – if he is unable to establish a place in the Real starting eleven.

“I spent many years in England. I did well and, perhaps, that’s why I’m still talked about,” Owen told The Sun.

“If someone comes and tells me there is a club interested in me and that I have to go, then I will have to do that.”

The former Liverpool star added that he expects changes to the personnel at the Spanish club before the start of the new Primera Liga season.

“I understand the way it is. A year without titles – then another after that. That’s not for Real Madrid,” added Owen.

“The president Florentino Perez and the management will decide which players have to leave and which will come.

“It’s the same at Real Madrid as other clubs.”

Owen joined Real from Liverpool in August 2004 and although he did not start many matches, he still managed to score 16 goals in the 2004-2005 campaign.

However, Real are believed to have received a number of inquiries for the forward with his former club Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United, all monotoring his situation.
