Manchester United boss David Moyes is reportedly considering the sale of Shinji Kagawa back to Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window, in order to fund a move for Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder.

According to the Express the United boss is keen to bring in Sneijder and is mulling over the possibility of sending Kagawa back to his former club in order to make room.

Kagawa has seen his struggles at United well-documented this season, and has been starved of game-time since the appointment of Moyes.

Dortmund are believed to have retained an interest in bringing the Japanese playmaker back to the Westfalenstadion, with Jurgen Klopp keen on strengthening his squad before the anticipated departure of Robert Lewandowski- particularly with the mounting speculation over Marco Reus' future.

Moyes is expected to make a raft of changes in the January transfer window, with as many as ten first-team starters finding themselves linked with the Old Trafford exit door.

At the same time though he has been linked with the potential acquisitions of a number of European stars, with Sneijder very much up there at the forefront of the pile. 

Whilst Kagawa appears to be a fan favourite, his lack of action places him firmly in the category of players who could be packing their bags sooner rather than later.
