Michael Owen could play his final game for Manchester United against Blackpool today – with Sir Alex Ferguson committed to Danny Welbeck next season.

The Old Trafford boss would have trouble finding a role for Owen next year, as he rewards striker Welbeck, 20, for an impressive loan spell at Sunderland, where he scored six league goals.

The Black Cats would like England Under-21 forward Welbeck to return – but Ferguson wants him in his squad and may sacrifice Owen, whose two-year contract has come to an end.

Ferguson also has the problem of what to do with Italian Federico Macheda, who went on loan to Sampdoria in January, but had difficulty making an impact.

Sampdoria have gone down to Serie B and Ferguson will speak with the striker, 19, after the Champions League final.
