Manchester United playmaker Shinji Kagawa still wants to leave the club, despite increased playing time in recent weeks under manager David Moyes.
The Daily Mail claims the Japanese international is wanted by clubs in Germany, and is seeking an exit despite only joining the Premier League champions in the summer of 2012.
Former club Borussia Dortmund is one of the teams linked with a move for the 24-year-old, whilst Bayer Leverkusen are the other side mentioned by the paper.
Kagawa swapped the Bundesliga for Manchester United last June, with Sir Alex Ferguson luring the coveted attacking midfielder to Old Trafford ahead of other interested parties.
He enjoyed a relatively positive first season with the Red Devils, helping the club to the title despite a two-month injury layoff midway through the season.
This term, he’s struggled to earn a regular place in the new manager’s side, with the rise of Adnan Januzaj affecting his Manchester United minutes.
It could lead to his exit from the club, if these reports are to be believed, although Moyes won't want to lose a fans' favourite in January after a difficult start to his reign at the club.
