Inter Milan are preparing to launch a bid for another Manchester United star in the form of Shinji Kagawa, according to Italian newspaper Tuttosport.
The Japanese international has failed to establish himself at Old Trafford following a £15m move in the summer of 2012.
Not only did he fail to impress Sir Alex Ferguson last season but has also not convinced his successor David Moyes thus far.
Kagawa, 24, has started just seven Premier League games this season and has yet to score or assist a single goal in any competition for Manchester United.
Moyes' £37m acquisition of Juan Mata, who plays in a similar position to Kagawa, in the January transfer window was a clear indication that the Japanese playmaker doesn't feature in his future plans.
Inter MIlan are now ready to end Kagawa's Old Trafford nightmare by launching a bid in the summer transfer window.
Although Kagawa has not played much over the last two years, Manchester United are apparently still unwilling to consider bids of less than £12m.
Such an offer shouldn't be a problem for Inter owner Erick Thohir, who has already promised to invest more funds to help the club back into the Champions League and the upper echelons of European football.
But money isn't the only obstacle for Inter to overcome to sign Kagawa. They will also have to unload one of their current midfielders in the form of Ricky Alvarez or his Croatian team-mate Mateo Kovacic.
