Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels admits he would love Shinji Kagawa to return to Signal Iduna Park this summer.
The Germany international told Kicker magazine that an attacking midfield trio comprised of Marco Reus, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Kagawa "would have style".
Kagawa has been linked with a move back to Dortmund on multiple occasions this season - while, in an ironic twist, the Red Devils are believed to be keen on signing Hummels this summer.
The Mirror claim that Dutch coach Louis van Gaal, who is expected to become the reigning Premier League champion's new permanent manager at the end of the season, wants to build his back-four around the 25-year-old.
However, judging by his latest comments about Kagawa, Hummels appears content to stay with his current employers.
"Of course we’d love to have Kagawa back," the central defender admitted. "An attacking midfield with Reus, Mkhitaryan and Shinji would have style."
Kagawa enjoyed two hugely successful years with the Bundesliga outfit, scoring 29 goals in 71 appearances and winning the German league title in back-to-back seasons.
He then secured a £12m move to Manchester United in the summer of 2012, but has failed to produce his best form at Old Trafford.
