Owen brochure sent to clubs
Michael Owen is bidding to secure a Premier League contract after his management company compiled a brochure on the striker. Wasserman Media Group has sent the document, which highlights the strengths of the former Liverpool man over a reported 34 pages, to a select group of top-flight clubs. The likes of Everton and Aston Villa have been linked with the marksman, who has struggled with injuries since joining Newcastle from Real Madrid in 2005. The 29-year-old has fallen out of favour in the England set-up and, following Newcastle's relegation from the top-flight, out-of-contract Owen is searching for a transfer to revive his flagging career. BenefitsSam Rush, chief operating officer of WMG, told the Sunday Mirror: "As one of the world's leading sports agencies, Wasserman regularly utilise comprehensive documentation and audio-visual material to illustrate the benefits of our clients. "Although there has been interest from abroad, Michael has told us that he would prefer to stay in the Premier League. "In the week after the season ended, we prepared a document showing all the information an interested club would require and this was circulated to a select group. "We also included a medical report and answers to frequently asked questions as well as a review of his commercial benefits and international name awareness."
