Manchester United have reportedly made a lucrative contract offer to Borussia Dortmund midfielder Shinji Kagawa.


German newspaper Bild is reporting that the Japan international is almost certain to leave the Bundesliga champions in the summer and that Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson has sanctioned an offer of a deal worth €6million a year.


Kagawa’s current contract expires in the summer 2013 and the report claims Dortmund would rather he leave this year for a fee, than lose him for nothing in a year – the Red Devils are expected to have to pay upwards of €15million to secure his signature.


The 23-year-old has been exceptional this season in filling the creative hole that was left by the long-term absence of Mario Gotze through injury and he even scored one of the goals that clinched the title for BVB last week.


Ferguson had trouble with creativity in his midfield earlier in the season but Paul Scholes’ decision to come out of retirement in January saw that restored and they have since gone on a run that has taken three points at the top of the league.


There is no real long-term Scholes replacement at Old Trafford and the Japanese playmaker could provide that.
