Old Trafford side ready to use attacker as a makeweight in pursuit of German forward.
Man United will offer Borussia Dortmund Shinji Kagawa in part exchange for forward Marco Reus as David Moyes seeks to conduct something of an attacking re-shuffle according to the Daily Mirror.
Old Trafford boss Moyes is happy to use Japanese international Kagawa as a makeweight in pursuit of 24 year old German international Reus having failed with a straight cash offer for the Westfalenstadion star back in January.
Reus could be the latest big name to leave Borussia Dortmund with boss Jurgen Klopp struggling to prevent a mass exodus as his side falls further off the domestic title pace.
Bayern Munich have already agreed a deal to sign striker Robert Lewandowski having also brought in youngster Mario Gotze from their domestic rivals last summer and now that the Bavarian side are some 23 points clear of Dortmund there is every chance that Reus would consider a move to the Premier League.
Kagawa has barely had a look-in under Moyes and when called upon has often been played out of position by the Scottish boss and the arrival of Juan Mata and the emergence of Adnan Januzaj have further limited his involvement in the first team set-up.
Reus has been a big success at Dortmund, scoring 31 goals and providing 21 assists in 79 appearances since moving to the club from Borussia Monchengladbach.
