Borussia Dortmund re-sign Shinji Kagawa


Manchester United flop Shinji Kagawa has completed a return to former club Borussia Dortmund.

Kagawa will sign a four year contract with the Dortmund, who sold the Japanese playmaker to United in 2012 for £12million.

But injuries have stunted the midfielders progress, and after failing to fit into David Moyes’ side last season, he has now been deemed surplus to requirements by new manager Louis van Gaal.

Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp repeatedly made it clear Kagawa would be welcomed back with open arms, and he will get his wish after an unhappy spell at Old Trafford for the attacking midfielder.

When it became clear chances would continue to be limited under current manager Louis van Gaal, Kagawa realised that it was time to return to Germany and Dortmund took their chance.

Spanish side Valencia were also interested in the Japan captain, but Kagawa wanted to return to the club where he made his name in European football.
