Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley has spoken glowingly of his on-pitch relationship with summer signing Shinji Kagawa.

The 23-year-old England international has started the 2012/13 campaign brightly alongside the former Borussia Dortmund playmaker, who has wasted little time in settling into his new surroundings.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been full of praise for the contribution of his creative midfielders this season, providing the service for a lethal front line that includes Wayne Rooney, and another recent acquisition Robin van Persie.

Kagawa in particular has taken well to the Premier League, and Cleverley believes their similar pass-and-move styles has made for a natural understanding.

"I've really enjoyed playing with Shinji," he reveals in the latest edition of Inside United. "He's really on my wavelength when it comes to playing one and two-touch football."

Cleverley also talked positively about the impact of United's other acquisitions, who have all made their presence felt at Old Trafford, which can only be good for the squad as a whole, as they look to wrestle the domestic title back from rivals Manchester City.

"They've all brought so much," he explained. "We all know what Robin van Persie is about and Nick Powell is a really good footballer and a good lad. He's definitely one for the future."

Manchester United maintained their perfect start to their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 victory over CFR Cluj in Transylvania on Tuesday, and return to Premier League action when they travel to Tyneside to face Newcastle on Sunday.
