Hargreaves reveals Man Utd target
Sir Alex Ferguson and Owen Hargreaves
Midfielder Hargreaves spent 10 years at Bayern Munich
New Manchester United signing Owen Hargreaves said he plans to win plenty of silverware at Old Trafford.

The England midfielder signed a reported 17m four-year deal after signing from Bayern Munich on 1 July.

"I'm looking forward to the next four seasons and having a lot of success and winning as many titles as possible," said the 26-year-old.

"There are so many fantastic players here and I think I'm just piece of a puzzle really."

Hargreaves added: "Every player brings his qualities and obviously mine are in the defensive midfield area.

"Hopefully I can win some tackles and keep a clean sheet for the back four, give them some protection and get the ball to the fantastic offensive players that we have.

"I'm 26, I've spent 10 years at a great club like Bayern Munich and had a lot of success as well.

"I'm looking forward to the next chapter in my career and to have the opportunity to play for one of, if not the, biggest club in the world."

606: DEBATE

Hargreaves was unveiled on Monday along with fellow new signing in Portuguese winger Nani.

"We have been monitoring Nani for almost as long as Cristiano," said United coach Sir Alex Ferguson.

"In a perfect world, he would have stayed in Portugal for another year but circumstances forced us into action.

"He is different to Cristiano in that he can play on both sides of the pitch but also in the middle. He is quick, has a terrific engine and I know we are getting a very talented, flexible player."
