Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has said that the club still hope to be able to bring Shiji Kagawa back from Manchester United at some point in the future, Sky Sports reports.

Watzke said last month that the ‘door is always’ open for Kagawa should he ever want to return to the Bundesliga outfit after spending two successful years there before joining Manchester United last summer.

Reports had emerged that he could be open to a return to Germany following a stop-start first year in England, but he quickly rubbished those rumours by claiming that he wasn’t ready to quit Old Trafford after just 12 months and has decided to stay committed to the Premier League champions.

Watzke has accepted that the club will have to be patient in their attempts at bringing the 24-year-old back, but has also admitted that he can see the move going ahead at some point.

He told Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung: “It’s a fact that Shinji said on his own accord that he can imagine a transfer back to our club in the future. That is delightful news for our club.

“Shinji Kagawa is a great player, he had great success at our club, and we would definitely consider him if this ever becomes a possibility.”
