Man United To Swap Flop Star With Borussia Dortmund?
Shinji Kagawa is one of the best players in the world.
Not my words, but the words of Borussia Dortmund's angry faced boss Jurgen Klopp – and I wouldn't argue with him, would you?
The German has admitted that he is heartbroken at the bit-part role of his ex-prodigy, and The Guardian reports that he has finally snapped, and decided to offer the Manchester United midfielder a path back to the Westfalenstadion.
Of course, David Moyes, with a squad full to the brim of world class creative talent, like Juan Mata, and, erm, Tom Cleverley, would be only too happy to oblige.
The Scot has struggled to find a place for his Japanese player – and is casting glances in the direction of Dortmund's Ilkay Gundogan as a bargaining chip.
And how could Gundogan refuse a move to the north west? After all, it is a little known fact that he is actually allergic to Champions League football – so the opportunity to get healthy and 'find himself' at Old Trafford may prove too good to refuse.
The Scot is also eyeing Real Madrid's industrious midfielder Sami Khedira and, well, anyone else who fancies coming - but with other a host of other top sides such as Chelsea also said to be interested in the German number six, he could have his work cut out securing that signature.
In the meantime though, Wayne Rooney has been reading through the first page of his new contract since Tuesday last week – and is finally in a position to ink his scrawl on a deal which will see him trouser £300k per week.
That's £7.50 in the time it took you to read through that sentence.
And £2.50 in the time it took you to read through that one.
