Crocked midfielder targeting MLS switch.
EX MANCHESTER City and Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has entertained the idea of a move to the MLS.
The Canadian-born player has been plagued with injuries throughout his career.
Hargreaves favours a move to the USA so he can be closer to his family.
He said: “Yes. They want me to go and play over there.
“It is a big move, you have to decide do you want to make the move, a big change. There are so many things I could do there and it would be nice to spend time in Canada.
“I am fit but having focused so much on football since I was 15, I am just taking a step back.”
Any MLS side interested in the former Champions League winner will have to think long and hard about the potential cost of a deal for player who has spent the best part of the past three seasons on the treatment table.
While a fully fit Hargreaves is still a player who can make an impact at the highest level, the former Man United star remains a risk.
That said, a healthy Hargreaves could well be a huge success in the MLS and it may be the right move at the right time for the 31-year-old, who has been desperately unlucky with injuries but is still not ready to hang up his boots.
The former Bayern Munich, Man United and Man City midfielder last started a top-tier game in November 2010.
