Rumor: Michael Owen to TFC?

Ok, so maybe this rumor is more hearsay than a solid link, but you have to admit that the John Carver/Newcastle connection on top of the fact that Owen (28) may be looking to leave the Magpies at the winter transfer window make this rumor a lil’ more juicy.

Owen has recently fallen out of favor with England manager Fabio Capello, who’s recently been running a 4-5-1 with Wayne Rooney as the lone striker, so a move away from England isn’t a write-off.

He is currently England’s fourth-highest scorer of all time with forty goals, and is England’s leading active goalscorer with 26 goals. Owen was the recipient of the Ballon D’or in 2001.
