Shinji Kagawa set for La Liga move
Japan international and current Borussia Dortmund midfielder Shinji Kagawa looks set to swap Germany for Spain, as reports emerged yesterday that Celta Vigo have agreed a fee to sign the former Man Utd player. Kagawa, who is considered a club legend at Dortmund, is seeking a final European transfer deal before returning to his homeland in 2021.
The 30-year-old has slipped down the pecking order at the Bundesliga side and has been informed he has no future with the side. Kagawa is now ready to move elsewhere in a deal worth approximately 5 million euros.
Speaking in November last year, Kagawa told reporters: “I am not afraid of going to a new country and I have already done Germany and England, now I am thinking about Spain.
“Spain would be the most important challenge in my career, I cannot retire without going there.”
It appears that Turkish duo Galatasaray and Besiktas have missed out on the transfer for Shinji Kagawa after the player opted to make the move to La Liga instead.
