Rumour Mill: Owen for £6m?

After it was revealed that Michael Owen has a release clause in his Newcastle United contract allowing him to leave for £6million, the press have been having a field day.As expected, the gossip mongers have linked him with a move back to Anfield, although there's very little chance of that happening after he shunned the opportunity to return from Spain to Liverpool in favour of St James Park.
Instead, it is a lot more likely that Manchester City will make a move. Sven Goran Eriksson's men have made a promising start to the new season and are looking likely to be playing European football next term.
Given the choice however, I'm sure the boy Owen would prefer to hang up his domestic boots to concentrate on his international career.
Do you think he should return to Liverpool? Have your say on the forum (contains strong language)
