Dalglish sends scouts for £18m United target – report

Published Add your comment

Kenny Dalglish has sent scouts to check on Shinji Kagawa, Talksport claims, as the Manchester United target continues to star for Borussia Dortmund.

At just 22-years-old, Kagawa has long been attracting attention from numerous European clubs, including Juventus and AC Milan.

And while United were thought to be front runners to sign the Japan international, should Liverpool make the Champions League this season, they could also be in the mix when the next summer transfer window rolls around.


The website is claiming that Liverpool and United would have to fork out £18 million to coax Kagawa into a move. While United were very keen in the past, they have cooled their interest in recent months, giving Liverpool confidence that they may be able to land their man.

Kagawa’s contract with Dortmund runs out in 2013, so next summer transfer speculation will no doubt be surrounding the starlet as he decides where his future lies.

Liveprool have been encouraged by sponsors Standard Chartered to sign more Asian players in order to grow their publicity in that region, and Kagawa could be the perfect fit in terms of skills and marketability.
