Owen Hargreaves will not be offered a new contract by Manchester United after his injury hell of the last three years.

The former England international has seen his Old Trafford career wrecked by tendinitis in both knees and has been able to make just two fleeting outings in the last two seasons and only three in the campaign prior to that.

Having signed a four-year contract after arriving from Bayern Munich in a £17million deal in July 2007, the 30-year-old is now on the lookout for a new club.

Sir Alex Ferguson admitted it was a tough call to make but had little option but to show the versatile midfielder the door.

Ferguson told the Mail on Sunday: "This has been a difficult decision knowing how hard the lad has worked to win back his fitness.

"But we have made it in the hope he will be able to resurrect his career elsewhere."
