Otherwise, I will get very angry and that will not be good for him. I can't understand that after two discussions he is still forcing the issue." United is expected to launch a $32 million bid for the player, who was most recently dropped for Bayern's match against Bochum this Sunday.

Hargreaves has won four German titles and Champions League crown since joining Bayern Munich in 1999. Read the original story...
