Borussia Dortmund chief Zorc: We DID try to re-sign Man Utd's Kagawa

Borussia Dortmund chief Michael Zorc has revealed they attempted to re-sign Shinji Kagawa from Manchester United this summer.

Zorc admits they wanted the Japan international ahead of recent signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

"Shinji has always said that he would someday return to Dortmund. After the departure of Mario Götze was certain, of course, the first thought was, how the situation is in the case of Shinji Kagawa," said Zorc.

"But after a call, it was clear that neither the player nor Manchester United were interested at this time for a change."
