Manchester United attacking midfielder Shinji Kagawa will leave Old Trafford in the summer if he isn't handed more minutes between now and the end of the season.

Manchester Evening News believe Kagawa has grown disillusioned with life at the Premier League champions after starting just seven Premier League games so far this season.

The Japanese playmaker, who moved to Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2012, has failed to replicate the kind of form that earned him a £17million move to England.

Kagawa showed glimpses of his former self under Sir Alex Ferguson but has failed to hold down a starting spot in Manchester United's starting line-up.

Sections of the Japanese press, who follow Kagawa's career closely, believe the 24-year-old will demand a move away from the club if he continues to be overlooked by David Moyes.

Kagawa, who came onto play the last 14 minutes against West Brom on Saturday, will be hoping to play some part in Manchester United's upcoming matches against Liverpool and Olympiakos.
