Man Utd Transfer News: Kagawa Out, Subotic In?

Manchester United are lining-up a shock swap deal involving out-of-favour Shinji Kagawa and Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic, according to the Express.

Although the summer transfer window is officially closed that doesn’t stop clubs working hard behind the scenes and preparing for the January transfer window, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest gossip. Here, Manchester United are lining up a swap deal involving Shinji Kagawa.


Manchester United are lining-up a shock swap deal involving out-of-favour midfielder Shinji Kagawa and Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic, according to the Express.

Kagawa has struggled to establish himself at United following a move from Dortmund in 2012 and has fallen down the pecking order under new boss David Moyes this season, leading to speculation he could be unsettled at Old Trafford.

The Japanese international remains a huge favourite back at Dortmund with fans recently creating an online petition to try and bring him back ‘home’, while manager Jurgen Klopp has aired his views on the 24-year-old being under-utilised at United and admitted he’d love to have him back in Germany.

The Express claim that Moyes is willing to part company with Kagawa in January in order to land his own target – Serbian defender Subotic – with a potential swap deal on the cards.

Subotic has established himself as one of the best centre-backs in the Bundesliga and it seems Moyes would rather strengthen his back-line than continue with what he sees as a bit-part player in Kagawa.

It remains to be seen how Dortmund would respond to such a proposal as Subotic remains an integral part of their plans, but it would certainly soften the blow of losing him if they were to get their former midfielder in exchange.

    I think the best solution to that problem is,let moyes buy a classic defender and leave kagawa to stay at united.kagawa is a very good player he should be constantly use at the 8 ring if ever moyes want to see his good performance.Kagawa should always be in first starting at the 8 ring or at the 7 or 11 ring at second half.When he plays according to these wings you can really see his good,perfect and accurate passes and performance

    If moyes want to make name and the club to be the best team in worldwide as how ferguson did,he should not allow any to leave or move from united as that makes the team to be more classic in their games.Players like giggs,young,ferdinand and vidic should no longer be starting players but their replacement should be brought.

    This lineup players will be acceptable if only moyes want to impress the world 1, 2, 3, 4,and 6 for defend. 17, 23, 26, and 16 for mieldfield. 20, and 10 for forward.Subtitute should be made like this, cleverly off for janujaz that is kagawa now plays the 8 wing.Nani off for welbeck and v persie off for hernadez.this changes should be done at 65 minute
