Manchester United has made the 1rst move in their attempt on signing Shinji Kagawa of Borussia Dortmund by launching a bid of approximately €17 million for the Japanese winger.
It is believed that Arsenal are also interested in acquiring the services of the 23 years old player which puts pressure on United and all of the other interested clubs. Kagawa has 1 more year left to play in Borussia Dortmund or at least according to his current contract that expires in 2013 however a good offer might be seeing him leave the German club earlier than expected.
Speaking last week, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc said: “I had a meeting with his agent and Shinji Kagawa has informed us that he will definitely not be extending his contract. Should we now receive offers for Kagawa, then we will consider and negotiate them.”
Kagawa was signed after the 2010 World Cup with a transfer fee of around €350,000 from there on out him has been a key piece in Dortmund’s quest for the Bundesliga title. Sir.Alex Ferguson was watching him play in the DFB-Pokal final in which Borussia defeated Bayern Munich 5-2.
