Manchester United are closing in on a deal for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Shinji Kagawa.

United have long been admirers of the Borussia Dortmund star, who has had his mind set for a £7million move to England for months, with Arsenal also interested.

Dortmund's president Michael Zorc announced: "Shinji is going to play in England because he has officially rejected our offer of a new contract."

Kagawa's is valued at well over £10m, but with his contract set to expire next summer, Dortmund will cash in on one of their prize assets rather than lose him for free.
