MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa, who admits he did not have the greatest of first seasons with the Red Devils, sparked transfer speculation on Monday when he told Japanese TV show Foot Brain that he would welcome a return to Borussia Dortmund.

"One day I will return, if Dortmund agrees to it,” the 24-year-old said. The highly rated Japan international reiterated that he did not feel he contributed enough to the Premier League champion’s campaign last season. “I am not at all satisfied with my performance,” he said, adding: “I did not score as many goals as I wanted and, moreover, I was injured. Other than the fact that we won the championship I cannot feel like I achieved everything I wanted to achieve. For me personally, it was not a good season.”

During his two years as a Dortmund player, Kagawa scored 21 goals and set up a further 12, forming a deadly partnership with striker Robert Lewandowski. He scored six goals for United last season. Both Kagawa’s agent Thomas Kroth and Dortmund CEO Aki Watzke confirmed that there were no plans for the playmaker to return to BVB.
