Playmaker has only been with the Red Devils for a year now.
Unwanted Manchester United midfield player Shinji Kagawa wants to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his place in the team says the player’s agent, reports talkSPORT.co.uk.
Rumours have been rife of late suggesting that the exciting Japan international was unhappy in the north west and would be open to a loan move to another club this season.
In fact, both Liga outfit Atletico de Madrid and Kagawa’s former club, Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, have both recently expressed an interest in taking the 24-year-old on a season-long loan.
Kagawa only moved to the Red Devils this time last year, joining the Premier League giants from Dortmund for an undisclosed fee, and in the process becoming the first-ever Japanese to play for the club.
However, the playmaker endured an up-and-down debut campaign at United, starting last season brilliantly, before suffering a knee injury that then curtailed the number of appearances that he was able to make for the club.
The attacking midfield player still managed to net six goals in 26 appearances though, all of which came in the Premier League as United regained the title, but Kagawa has so far not featured in the top flight this season under new United boss David Moyes.
And yet the player’s agent, Thomas Kroth, has told Kicker: “Atletico had the information that a loan move is possible. But that’s not true. There’s nothing to it. Shinji wants to stay in Manchester.”
