No way would a buying club ever agree to this - cloud-cuckoo land.
You'd think that any normal player in his position would sign with a personal agreement not to play against them, but with Owen I doubt it.
The connection with the club? Where you grew up... where you were given your chances? What should be your lifeblood. It's a competition, I know, but I'd have some loyalty to them, especially if I was going to one of their biggest rivals. This isn't some minor switch. For Liverpool fans it'll be a huge deal. But then as a Scum "fan" you might not be able to appreciate that.
Trowel... wage packet I'm sure.
