Manchester United are weighing up using Shinji Kagawa as a makeweight in their deal for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal.

The Independent says Kagawa, whom manager Louis van Gaal pointedly declared at the weekend had been incapable of operating in a new designated central position, could possibly be used to secure a breakthrough, with the £32m the Turin side are likely to want seemingly unrealistic.

With AC Milan's Nigel de Jong not on United's list, Vidal appears to be Van Gaal's only option, though the Ajax player Daley Blind - another possible 11th-hour target - can also operate in midfield.

Kagawa is also a target for Peter Lim's Valencia this week.
