Man United playmaker to leave club as £37m man arrives - reports

Shinji Kagawa could be set to leave Manchester United this month following the arrival of Juan Mata, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The Japanese playmaker’s position in the squad has been placed under immediate threat following the all but certain capture of £37million Mata from Chelsea this week and as such it is thought that he could seek an exit to guarantee himself regular football.

What’s more, the report from the Manchester Evening News claims that David Moyes does not see Kagawa in his first team plans for the future now that he has managed to sign an esteemed playmaker.

The source states that Moyes would prefer an attacking trio of Mata, Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, meaning that Kagawa would fall even further down the pecking order.

Former club Borussia Dortmund have signalled their interest in taking him back to the Westfalenstadion as Jurgen Klopp wants to add to his squad this month.

There are a host of other clubs rumoured to be keeping an eye on his situation but it will likely cost more than the £12million United paid for him to prise him away.
