MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United's Owen Hargreaves, who has played just 39 matches since joining the club in 2007, will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury.

Hargreaves, a Calgary native, joined from Bayern Munich for nearly $28 million, but his contract runs out at the end of the season and he could have played his last match for United.

"It is a shoulder injury. It has just brought his season to an end," United coach Sir Alex Ferguson said. "He has just carried bad luck all the time he has been here. I am pretty sure he won't be playing this season.

"His contract is up at the end of the season but I don't know what is going to happen."

Hargreaves last played in November, when his long-awaited return from injury ended after just five minutes because of a new hamstring injury. He played for England at the 2002 and 2006 World Cups and Euro 2004, before injuries started to derail his career.
