Manchester United are reportedly set to make an offer for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Shinja Kagawa in January.

According to, the Japan international is also being pursued by AC Milan and Juventus, but both clubs have been told by intermediaries that United will bid €17 million for him in the New Year.

Kagawa has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for a number of months and, it would appear, Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to launch a concerted effort to sign the 22-year-old.

United are still thought to be keen to bring in midfield reinforcements following the retirement of Paul Scholes although, so far, the Red Devils have coped expertly without the 36-year-old.


Kagawa, meanwhile, stated in the summer that he would be open to joining United, if Ferguson came calling.

"If I get a formal offer, I'll be strongly interested in listening to what they have to say," he said.

"The Premiership is one of the leagues I want to challenge. If it is (United), I'll be still more eager to go and try and see how much I can do there."
