Manchester United star will be better than Ozil

I doubt there is a single Manchester United fan who is happy with the summer transfer activity - or lack there of.

Still, we will see over the course of the season whether not signing more players will come back to bite them.

However, there is still a glimmer of hope. The fact that Manchester United turned down the chance to sign Mesut Ozil means one thing:  Moyes has faith in Shinji Kagawa. 

I have always been a massive fan of Kagawa. Whether it be his eye for a killer pass, perfectly timed runs into the box or his fantastic turn of pace, he is undoubtedly one of the most talented midfielders on the planet.

He has become a forgotten man of late, not even making the bench against Liverpool, but I think Moyes has learned his lesson. Young should be the one left at home, not Shinji.

There was an alarming lack of creativity in the team. United only put up two real shots of note and both were nowhere near clear cut chances.

Again and again, Antonio Valencia was able to beat his man but then delivered a pathetic cross. Ashley Young, on the other hand, didn't even go as far as to beat his man. I feel a bit for Valencia actually.

Having Phil Jones as a partner on the wing isn't every man's dream. He lacks the pace, dribbling skills, and passing ability that Rafael has.

Jones is much better utilised either in holding midfield of in centre back. Either way Young needs to go, and Valencia should be warned it is his last chance. 

I think the statement of bringing in Marouane Fellaini is a real indicator that Moyes is finally willing to change his tactics.

His time at Everton saw few real tactical switches as he stuck to his trusty 4-4-2, or some variation of it. However, two world-beating holding midfielders in the form of Michael Carrick and Fellaini presents Moyes the perfect defensive duo to possibly pursue a 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3.

Kagawa is an integral part of either of these, as resuming his role in attacking midfielder may draw out the superstar he was two years ago. Couple that with a rotating Front line of Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Wilfried Zaha, and the world better watch out.

Ozil is a superstar in the truest sense of the word, but Kagawa most certainly has the potential to become that. He has all the necessary traits - now all he needs is a chance.
