Shinji Kagawa heading towards Old Trafford exit

Share

It became very clear when Louis van Gaal stated that Shinji Kagawa didn’t meet his expectations, the Japanese would be heading towards Old Trafford exit door.

Kagawa is a conundrum. He was a phenomenal hit during his time at Borussia Dortmund, but never really hit the ground running at Manchester United. Many feel, he hasn’t been used properly. Played out of position, the club didn’t play according to his strengths and wasn’t given proper time to settle.

He is now close to returning back to his old club. German tabloid Bild claim that Manchester United are demanding a fee in the region of €10m (€8m direct payment and €2m on bonuses), they add nothing new to what GDM reported last night, but they add the Japan international is expected to undergo his medical today. 

Kagawa’s representative Thomas Kroth has refused to comment on the matter, while Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp didn’t give much hints either. Klopp said about a possible move yesterday: “I would not rule anything now complete. I would not bet on it though.”

Another German newspaper Ruhr Nachrichten claim that a group of BVB fans were in full party mood gathered in front of the Miners’ Hospital in Dortmund-Brackel for the reception of Kagawa. The newspaper claim Dortmund’s ‘prodigal son’ is close to return back to the club where he achieved fame and glory during his two years’ stay. 

La Liga giants Valencia were also thought to be interested in Kagawa. Valencia’s local newspaper Superdeporte claim that Manchester United had agreed a deal with them over the transfer of Kagawa, but the player turned down the move as he prefers to return back to his old club.

  1. kagawa should gooo,
    back to his roots

  2. i can feel why LVG want to exit some player in contrast many fans that LVG like shooting something on garbage!!
    in fact his squad needs attack players and dangers players.
    that’s the reason ,these players like kagawa and … are attack players but not in attack squads!!in defend squads like SAF squad!!

    so he must sell many players to reach his phylisipy!!!!
    in this squad we need 3 defenders
    so they must be international defenders
    but none of them until now is are international
    smalling is going to be ferdinand but not now!!
    phil jones is talented players but he is in 50 percentage of his ability!!
    i didnt hear about new left defenders last match played.he was very good but also he was not international.
    and its rediculous when manutd wanted to defence last match.they didnt have good plan like SAF .
    LVG its very easy to manage .why you think you have big meal and its hard to recognize!!
