how to bend this crepe myrtle

I need to bend this crepe myrtle that is already grown some. How would I do this or should I just dig it up and move it? The tree is pushing up against my roof and needs to be pushed out about a foot but I don’t want to move it. If I could just train it to grow outwards more, this would be fine.

As a long term solution I think moving the tree would be the most beneficial for you and the tree.
Bending the tree is really not a good option.
Here are a few links with more information.
