The 24 Japanese international has barely featured under David Moyes and will certainly be considering his options, with former club Borussia Dortmund also said to be keen on the attacking midfielder.
Kagawa had an average first season at Old Trafford but was some way below expectations that were created following his two explosive seasons in Germany, during which he helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to back to back domestic titles.
However his chances have become increasingly limited during the current campaign with Moyes only offer Kagawa three Premier League starts thus far this season.
One wonders why Jose Mourinho would be interested in the Kobe born attacker when he can’t even find room for Juan Mata in his first team set-up, the Spaniard having won the Blues Player of the Year awards in each of the last two seasons.
Tottenham on the other hand could perhaps benefit from some more effective options in the final third after Andre Villas-Boas’s poor start to the season despite the spending of over £100m on new additions to his White Hart Lane squad.
