Manchester United want another Bundesliga star in swap deal

Neven Subotic (Borussia Dortmund)

The Football Transfer Tavern is packed this evening as the last Premier League action for a few weeks ends as the international break kicks in.

David Kent from Mail Online has now arrived with news that has caused a stir in the tavern, especially among the few United supporters playing in the snooker tournament.

The journalist reports that Manchester United could move for Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic with former player Shinji Kagawa returning to the Westfalenstadion.

Kagawa, 24, was an unused substitute for David Moyes’ side in yesterday’s 2-1 win over Sunderland and his future at Old Trafford looks increasingly in doubt.

The Japanese midfielder arrived in Manchester in a £17 million deal under former boss Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer of 2012 but despite the moments of quality, he has struggled to hold down a regular first team place with the club.

Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp is now looking to bring back his former player to the Bundesliga and could be willing to see the Serbian international moving in the opposite direction.

Moyes want to add more quality to his back line and the 24-year-old becoming a major option after his impressive performances for Dortmund in their run to the Champions League final last term.

Rio Ferdinand could end his United career in the summer, and the former Everton boss wants a solid alternative to Nemanja Vidic and Jonny Evans at Old Trafford and the Serbian fits the bill.

Would Subotic fulfill Moyes’ needs at Old Trafford in the transfer window? Let us know your thoughts below.
