Real Madrid get Robinho; Michael Owen gets shown the door?

Real Madrid made two big announcements within a few hours of one another today. First, they sealed a deal with Sevilla for Julio Baptista and then they got a five-year contract with Robinho.

So where does this leave Michael Owen? Between Ronaldo and Raul, Owen will not get many chances as a starter. Someone with as much talent as Owen has will not be happy collecting his pay from the bench.

I'm sure Arsenal are interested in bringing him back to the EPL, but will they be able to handle the cost? Real will want to make some money in order to pay for their new Brazilians, so it will be a little pricey.

Rumor has it that Newcastle and Man United are also interest in Owen.
