Michael Owen has reaffirmed his intention not to drop down the divisions.

When his time at the very top level is over - he is out of contract at Manchester United at the end of the season - he won’t be hanging around.

"I could score goals at this level for many years and I would love it to be at a top club like United," he told the Daily Mail. "Of course I would love to stay here. Whether I would want to be dropping down to a poorer Premier League team, I don’t know.

Yes I could score goals but I would probably get less enjoyment. You are playing with great players here and you do get chances. At a lesser team it would be harder.

"There are some strikers that you look at and think, 'You couldn’t play in a good team'. They are built to be tough, win balls and flick-ons but if you are looking for the ball to be played in to feet and use clever flicks and one-twos they would just get shown up.

"I just don’t feel that my game is suited to a team who are really struggling."
