Napoli could spark a bidding war for the services of Manchester United star Shinji Kagawa, as they’ve reportedly registered their interest in signing the midfielder.

According to talkSPORT the Italian giants, alongside his former club Borussia Dortmund, are keen to take advantage of the Japan international’s uncomfortable stance at Old Trafford and the fact that the club want to offload a number of players in the summer. Having been signed by Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2012, Kagawa has rarely lived up to the lofty expectations which accompanied the £12million price tag.

Things went from bad to worse under David Moyes, as the 25-year-old was regularly left on the sidelines this campaign. Such is his situation in Manchester at the moment that the general consensus is that he could be part of the mass exodus of first-team stars as the new manager looks to revamp the squad.

It’s thought that Napoli, fresh from winning the Coppa Italia, are keen on acquiring Kagawa, as Rafael Benitez looks to close the gap between his side and Juventus for next year. Dortmund have retained a strong interest in bringing the playmaker back to Germany, and so a transfer battle could ensue.
