The England international has not flown out to South Africa for United's pre-season tour because of a knee injury.

However, despite reports to the contrary, Hargreaves is expected to have recovered from the injury in time for United's opening game of the new Premier League season against Newcastle on August 17th.

"Owen is not written off for the start of the season at all," manager Alex Ferguson has said.

"I am sure he will be okay."
