Zorc: We will consider Kagawa offers

Published Add your comment

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that Shinji Kagawa will 'definitely not' be signing a new deal with the club, paving way for a summer switch to Manchester United.

Sky Sports has revealed how reports in Germany claim the 23-year-old midfielder's agent flew to England last week to open negotiations with the Premier League giants.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson, and his assistant Mike Phelan, were both in attendance for the German Cup final at the weekend, to see Kagawa score in Dortmund's 5-2 win over Bayern Munich.

As long-term admirers of the Japanese international, a move to Old Trafford looks increasingly likely, with Ferguson known to be in the market for midfield reinforcements this summer.

After holding a final meeting with the player to discuss his future, Dortmund director of sport Michael Zorc was open about the player's probable move.

"I had a meeting with his agent yesterday [Monday] morning and Shinji Kagawa has informed us that he will definitely not be extending his contract," he told Kicker.

"Should we now receive offers for Kagawa, then we will consider and negotiate them."

With 21 goals in 49 Bundesliga appearances, Kagawa has played a key role in Dortmund's back-to-back league titles, and will command a significantly higher transfer fee than the £250,000 the club paid to bring him to Germany two years ago.
