Moyes set to swap Kagawa for Dortmund Star in January
David Moyes has reportedly become frustrated with the form of Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa to the extent that he is happy to see the player leave this January.
Ex-club Borussia Dortmund are reportedly hugely keen to retain the services of their former player, and have emerged as the front-runners in a race to sign the past Bundesliga player of the year.
Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted repeatedly that he would love to re-sign Kagawa, and has bemoaned his treatment at Manchester United thus far. Klopp even went so far as to suggest that he “weeps” every time he sees Kagawa played out of position at Old Trafford.
Kagawa himself also recently told Japanese television that he hopes his time at Dortmund is not over, and that he would be willing to return to the German club.
However, it appears that Moyes would only be willing to part with Kagawa if there is a player exchange that results in United acquiring the services of defender Neven Subotic in return.
Moyes is keen to bolster his shaky defence that has already suffered the worst start to a Premier League season in 24 years.
With Rio Ferdinand ageing relatively rapidly, Moyes appears ready to part with Kagawa in order to pair Vidic and Subotic in his central defence.
Whilst this would represent an unceremonious exit for Kagawa, a player that held such promise upon his arrival, certainly it is a move that might prove beneficial for all parties involved.
