Owen Hargreaves is looking to get his career back on track after a hideous succession of injury set backs blighted his Man United career. The former England international made an immediate impact on arriving at Old Trafford, making 34 appearances in his first season as Sir Alex Ferguson’s side captured the Premier League and Champions League crowns.

Then things went from bad to worse as the midfielder managed just five more appearances in three injury ravaged seasons. Hargreaves was then told he would not be offered a new contract and has now been looking for a new club and a move back to his native Canada seems on the cards.

Toronto FC joined the MLS in 2007 and have steadily improved year on year and are one of the best supported teams in the league. Hargreaves will of course first have to prove his fitness before any deal can be complete but clearly when fully fit Hargreaves could well be a hugely important player for the club.
