United announced a deal to sign Kagawa had been reached with Borussia Dortmund at the start of the month, but with Kagawa on international duty and him needing to obtain a work permit, the deal has only been completed today.
Kagawa completed his medical this morning at the Bridgewater Hospital to seal the deal and the signing has delighted manager Sir Alex who said:
“He’s an exciting young midfielder with great skill, vision and a good eye for goal. I’m delighted he’s chosen to come.
“I believe he’ll make an impact on the team very quickly as he’s suited to our style of play-we’re looking forward to working with him”
Kagawa will get straight to work with United after the Japanese FA confirmed he would be omitted from their Olympic team and the 23 year old is looking forward to life at Old Trafford:
“This is a challenge I’m really looking forward to. The Premier League is the best in the world and United is such a massive club.
“This is a really exciting time for me and I can’t wait to meet the team and start playing.”
