It is now official, Michael Owen is a Real Madrid player as Liverpool confirmed the transfer of the striker to the court of Camacho.

The Reds announced the news on their official website, stating that Owen did not sign a new contract and has chosen Real Madrid as his destination.

Even though no financial details have been revealed as of yet, the deal should be around 12 million Euros plus Antonio Nunez.

Despite losing the 2001 Golden Ball winner, Rafa Benitez still believes he has a team with a lot of potential as the new Liverpool coach stated: "The cotnract is not done yet. Michael will have to pass the medical tests in Madrid and the same goes for Nunez. Everything should be over soon. We still have good attackers and a good team."

This only doesn't make any sense from a pure football point of view, financially I don't see the point. The markets where Owen is a star I would think Beckham already covers. Perez's worst galactico buy yet.

goal.com used to be soccerage, the same guys who created the article "Official: Vieri to Juve", which, as we all know, was untrue.

Owen has become an average player. His main advantage, his pace, has been taken away from him. After his numerous muscle injuries, the doctors told him he has to slow down and be less explosive, and that has crippeled his game.

No Real has Ronaldo, Morientes, Raul and Owen. Great.

They plan on playing the opposite of catenaccio. Score as many ****ing goals as possible, so they can't lose. I like that philosophy much better.

Do they get newspapers out there in Spain? I swear, Camacho must be reading headlines from Euro 2000 with a decision like that.

Owen is still a class striker. Like DP(but better goalscorer) suffers in dip in form, but he was playing for Liverpool. I wish him well. Easy out Owen son.
