The Daily Express have claimed that Manchester United outcast Shinji Kagawa could well be a shock target for Atletico Madrid – and the majority of our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are shocked.
We were pretty sure that Kagawa would be on his way out with new boss Louis van Gaal not one to mess around in transfer windows.
However, we thought it would be to former club Borussia Dortmund, however Diego Simeone has made no secret of his admiration for the Japanese international attacking midfielder and would happily bring him to the Vicente Calderon to reignite his career.
The majority of our punters think that it is a massive shame we were denied the chance to see Kagawa do well, but that his time at Old Trafford is up and a clean break for both United and the player is the best thing possible.
United are recruiting heavily this summer and along with new faces, the deadwood has to be cut and they are not exactly taking their time over it!
Manchester United fans. Do you think van Gaal will cash in on Kagawa? Did Moyes ruin him? Let us know your thoughts below.
