Manchester United target Shinji Kagawa has not yet agreed a move to United, despite reports which suggested a deal was done, according to

Kagawa's agent has insisted the quotes attributed to the midfielder declaring an agreement with the Red Devils were fakes. The player's representative has now said that the 23-year-old's future remains undecided, suggesting a move to a United rival is not out of the question.

Reports suggested that the Japanese midfielder had told Osaka TV that following the German Cup Final against Bayern Munich, the Dortmund player would sign for United.

However, the player's agent has disputed this, saying there was no guarantee on where the playmaker would be playing next season.

"Nothing is decided yet," Thomas Kroth, the player's representative, told Bild.

Kagawa has played a key role in Dortmund's Bundesliga winning campaign this season but the attacking midfielder is set to quit the German club after failing to agree terms on a new contract.

His current deal expires at the end of next season, leading to speculation that Dortmund would permit him to seek a move away this summer. Kagawa has pledged to decide on his future after the Cup final against Bayern but he is not expected to resign with Dortmund.

United were believed to be leading the race to sign the youngster with a £7m deal, but it seems nothing has been decided yet, leaving the door open for other interested clubs to steal in.
