Born in Canada to a Welsh mother and English father, Hargreaves was eligible to play for either Canada, Wales or England. Once committing to England, the experienced midfielder went on to claim 42 (senior) international caps.
After spending part of his youth career at the Calgary Foothills, Hargreaves joined Bayern Munich's youth academy in 1997
, before becoming a prominent figure in their first team.
Manchester United signed Hargreaves for £17 million
in July 2007, however reoccurring injuries largely impacted his four year tenure at Old Trafford.
Looking to the future, the 30-year-old
has turned to YouTube to capture the attention of potential employers, as a return to his homeland looks increasingly likely. Both the Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC have expressed interest, although, as stated by Paul Mariner
, Toronto FC's director of player development: "Any club making that investment in a player needs to know he can play on a regular basis."
