Shinji Kagawa soon to join Manchester United

June 5, 2012

Shinji Kagawa, Manchester United

Shinji Kagawa had been tracked by Manchester United for a long time and they seem to have finally got the man that they wanted. Shinji Kagawa had been one of the best players for Borussia Dortmund, as he scored many a goals for the club. In fact, he scored 21 goals in his two seasons at the club. He would try to replicate the same success at Old Trafford, which is not going to be an easy task.

Manchester United would be pleased to see him wearing the red devils jersey. He has all the attributes needed to be a strong player in the EPL circuit. His attacking prowess in the final third of the game could prove to be handy. Not only does he score goals but also sets up his team mates many a times, which makes him a great signing. Still, it is startling to figure out, why does Borussia Dortmund want to sell off the player, who has been adjudged the best Bundesliga player of the year. Is it all about the money?

The midfielder from Japan needs to adapt to a different environment, where the game is played at a faster pace than anywhere in the world. It has to be understood that the players transfer is not yet complete but it is expected to happen in the coming weeks. He is yet to undergo medical examination and also has to obtain a work permit.

But, it is evident that the Manchester Club has signed the player for more than footballing reasons. Imagine how the clubs fan base would increase in Japan. Along with Honda, he is one of the hot shot Japanese players plying their trade elsewhere.  With the number of expected jersey sales in Japan to rise, the club would also benefit a lot.
