Munich:

England midfielder Owen Hargreaves is leaving Bayern Munich for Manchester United.

Bayern president Franz Beckenbauer and board member Helmut Markwort confirmed on German television on Sunday that the transfer would go ahead.

Manchester United had tried to get Hargreaves during the midseason transfer period but Bayern had refused to let him go.

Bayern will earn "a little bit over" $33.7 million from the deal, Beckenbauer said.

The Bayern bosses also indicated that the club would try to bring Werder Bremen striker Miroslav Klose during the summer.

Klose still has a year on his contract and Bremen has said he won't be allowed to join another Bundesliga club before he becomes a free agent.

But Markwort said Bremen had to decide whether "it wants money" for Klose.

Bayern finished the season without a title and is rebuilding the team.
