Like a lot of Manchester United’s current squad, Shinji Kagawa’s future at the club looks far from secure because of his limited impact this season.
For whatever reason, the 24-year-old has been unable to blossom into the player who tore up the Bundesliga at Old Trafford.
At times when placed in his favoured position, he has been fantastic but equally so, there have been some disappointing and invisible performances from the Japanese playmaker.
His recent substitute appearance against West Brom was fantastic and he played a major role in United’s beautiful third goal but David Moyes has chosen to use him very sparingly, which is why there is every chance he could leave United in the summer.
In light of that, take a look at this breakdown of Kagawa’s situation by ESPN’s Raphael Honigstein where he discusses Kagawa’s future, looked at how plausible a return to Dortmund was and who was to blame for his demise in the Premier League.
It’s interesting to note that Jurgen Klopp lied about Nuri Sahin’s return to Dortmund until the day a deal was concluded but Honigstein feels that Dortmund simply do not Kagawa in their squad even if a return was a possibility.
Do you think Manchester United will sell Shinji Kagawa in the summer?
