Owen also bought an entire street for his extended family (Austen Close, Ewloe), which is in an area close to where he used to live, and also went to school nearby at Hawarden High School.

 Michael Owen | Newcastle United | Squad | Profiles
Michael left Anfield for Real Madrid in August 2004, and made 20 starts for the Spanish giants, and a further 15 from the bench, netting 13 La Liga goals however the acquisition of additional strikers by the Spanish Champions in the summer of 2005 made him look elsewhere for regular first team football.
Owen has been capped 75 times for his country, and his 35 goals see him positioned fourth in the all-time England hotshots list behind Bobby Charlton (49), Gary Lineker (48) and Jimmy Greaves (44) and with time on his side, the all-time England goal record is certainly within his grasp.
Michael has gone on record as saying that one of his best-ever goals came at St. James' Park, when he found the net for England Schoolboys against Scotland's youngsters after a mazy run and cool finish at the Leazes End.

 Don't delay, let's have Owen back on display | the Daily Mail
A national treasure, by nature and accomplishment, Owen has lost a large chunk from the middle of his career but is said to be stronger and fitter than he has been for years.
Owen’s salary — the £120,000-aweek often quoted is an exaggeration — is being met half by Shepherd’s insurers and half by the FA, who point out they are one of only two associations who guarantee compensation for injuries sustained on national service: in their case a maximum of £55,000-a-week.
Owen feels a vast debt of honour to Shepherd personally and Newcastle’s fans — 20,000 of whom turned out to greet him when he was captured from Real Madrid — but you wonder how fast that empathy might evaporate if his employers delay the day when the FA and insurance money stops rolling in.
