So after a thrilling Premier League year, where Man City won their first title in 44 years in stoppage time on the last day of the season, the unfortunate runner’s-up, Man U, are now looking to significantly bolster their squad.
Their first move is to increase their fire power. Already loaded with tons of talent with the likes of Rooney, Nani, Valencia, Ashley Young, Chicarito and Berbatov, Sir Alex Ferguson is eagerly trying to add another cog into that rotation. That cog could very well be Japanese and Bundesliga superstar, Shinji Kagawa.
After helping Dortmond win back to back titles, Man U are looking to snatch up the shifty forward/midfielder this summer. Kagawa’s contract is up next year and Dortmouth are looking to get something out of losing Kagawa. His transfer fee is reportedly going to be extremely high, most likely in the millions…but hey, when has a little bit of money ever stopped Man U?

“It was good to meet and actually talk to him,” said the 23-year-old. “He had some nice things to say to me.”
Kagawa has been widely linked with a £7m transfer to United, but said he was still considering his options.
“There’s no timetable on my decision. I’ve been in touch with a number of clubs, and I can’t say which one is the best for me yet. But I want to go to a team where it’ll be challenging for me. It’d be nice if I end up playing in the Premier League.”
Kagawa has enjoyed an exceptional two years with the Bundesliga champions, who snapped up the youngster from the Japanese second division side Cerezo Osaka in 2010 for only €350,000 (£280,000).
Dortmund had hoped to tie the coveted player to a longer contract but Kagawa is set to reject that offer and move.
