Manchester United star Shinji Kagawa has played down talk that he wants to leave the club, by revealing his desire to play in a different position.

According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport the Japanese international sees taking up a new role in the team as the ideal way to force his way back into contention for a regular starting spot. 

Kagawa has largely struggled to make an impression since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement, and has been restricted in terms of first-team opportunities. The lack of action has naturally prompted speculation concerning his future at Old Trafford, by the 24-year-old has hinted that his main focus is on improving himself for the good of the team.

"Every day I try to improve myself on the left side and learn how to get rid best of my opponents. But I would still be able to operate in several positions. Managing to assume different roles, I'll be a more interesting player for the team," Kagawa told reporters.

The former Borussia Dortmund playmaker missed the defeat at Newcastle at the weekend due to illness but will be hoping to have an impact against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League mid-week.

With United already qualified the game may be an opportunity for Moyes to tinker with his squad with a view to halting their recent slump in form.
