Manchester, England: Manchester United confirmed it is interested in signing England midfielder Owen Hargreaves. United manager Alex Ferguson said Friday that he's been negotiating with German champion Bayern Munich to sign Hargreaves, who was England's outstanding player in its lackluster World Cup campaign this year. However, Bayern denied discussing Hargreaves with Manchester United. Hargreaves, who was born in Canada to British parents, has been at Bayern since he was 16. He's won four Bundesliga titles, two German Cups and one Champions League title with Bayern.
