Manchester United is ready to make a strong bid for the Borussia Dortmund star Shinji Kagawa. A couple of club insiders have also come up with similar reports. The Japan international, Shinji Kagawa has helped Borussia Dortmund to two consecutive Bundesliga titles and is widely considered one of the best young attacking midfielders in Europe.
The 23-year-old, Shinji Kagawa can also play as a winger on both wings. Borussia Dortmund manager, Jurgen Klopp is all praise for his young prodigy but if a good offer arrives for Shinji Kagawa he will be ready to sell him off.
Sir Alex Ferguson and his scouts travelled to witness Shinji Kagawa’s skills first-hand. Reportedly, Sir Alex Ferguson is quite impressed with Shinji Kagawa and is ready to make a large bid on him as soon as the summer transfer window opens.
A couple of other European clubs are also attempting to sign in Shinji Kagawa. Juventus, Manchester City and Arsenal are some of the clubs interested in signing Shinji Kagawa.
Sir Alex Ferguson reckons he has seen few players of Shinji Kagawa’s caliber. The Old Trafford boss, Sir Alex Ferguson is planning to let go a number of Manchester United players at the end of the season. The list includes Michael Owen, Dimitar Berbatov, Fedrico Macheda and Ji-Sung Park.
Manchester United has also been struck by a severe midfield crisis this past season. Paul Scholes had to return from retirement to help Manchester United with their midfield problem. Although, Manchester United can use Thomas Cleverly in the midfield, the youngster lacks experience.
Shinji Kagawa on the other hand has amassed tons of experience at such a young age. Shinji Kagawa has been in impressive form for Borussia Dortmund ever since he was signed in 2010. In his first season with the club, Shinji Kagawa scored 12 goals and assisted twice in 28 games.

Shinji Kagawa has also appeared in 29 games for Japan and scored nine goals.
