Borussia Dortmund midfielder Shinji Kagawa will wait until after the German Cup final before announcing where his future lies, amidst links with a summer switch to Manchester United.
Sky Sports reports how the 23-year-old Japanese international will not be renewing his one-year deal to remain at the Westfalenstadion - a development that was confirmed by the club last week.
Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been credited with an interest in bringing Kagawa to Old Trafford, as he looks to strengthen his midfield department.
However, the attacking playmaker is keen to put discussions of a potential move to Manchester United, or anywhere else for that matter, until the end of the season.
"I have not taken a decision just now," he told Bild. "I will only decide after the match against Bayern Munich and it will be after long discussions with my agent."
After it emerged that Kagawa would be leaving, Dortmund's fans have responded positively, and have continued to show their support for the want-away star.
"I am pleased to get massive support from the Dortmund supporters and the Dortmund crowd in recent weeks," Kagawa explained. "This is just fine, I am enjoying this very much.
"We are now trying to even more win the remaining match against Bayern Munich in the German Cup.
"It would be our fifth straight win against Bayern and would be even more of an icing on the cake. To win the Bundesliga and the German Cup in one season would be just great."
