Netzer: Bayern should sell Hargreaves to Man Utd

He said: “It was correct of Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge that they decided to keep Hargreaves. They pointed out their expectations to the player and called in his loyalty.

“Now the conditions have changed.

“Manchester United have again increased their offer.

“If the sum of £20 million is really true, I can only say: Now they must sell Hargreaves!

“Because he’s not of that value and, secondly, they could buy an alternative player.

“Because it is clear – Hargreaves is a good and important player for Bayern.

“But he is completely and surely not worth £20 million.”
