Michael Owen has told Manchester United he has no desire to leave the club despite the chief executive, David Gill, confirming there will be an extensive overhaul of Sir Alex Ferguson’s squad this summer.

The 31-year-old striker is out of contract at Old Trafford next month and, along with Paul Scholes and Dimitar Berbatov, is expected to discuss his future with Gill in the coming days. Owen is unlikely to be offered an extension to the two-year contract he signed on joining from Newcastle United in 2009, having started one Premier League game for the champions this season and made 33 of his 48 appearances for the club from the substitutes’ bench. He is, however, content to continue in a peripheral role if required.

“I have loved every minute,” said Owen, who qualified for a championship medal this season. “We have great players, great staff, a great manager and great fans. Hopefully it can continue.”
