Man Utd’s Shinji Kagawa: I’ve never thought about Barça or Madrid move
Manchester United's Shinji Kagawa says he has never thought about joining Barcelona, Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain
Shinji Kagawa has rubbished talk of the Manchester United midfielder playing for Barcelona, Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain in the future.
The Japan international has scored twice in six appearances for the Red Devils after completing a switch from Borussia Dortmund to Old Trafford this summer.
The 23-year-old was in top form for Japan on Friday night, with the attacking midfielder netting the winner in a 1-0 victory over France.
And Kagawa insisted he is fully focused on establishing himself as a first-team regular at the 19-time English champions.
“I have never thought about Barcelona or Madrid,” Kagawa told L’Equipe.
“Paris are a great team that will continue to grow this season. It is also a very nice city, but I am focused 100 per cent on life in Manchester.
“You never know what the future will hold.”
He added: “I am now a Manchester United player and the fans and my team-mates expect more from me.
“Since arriving in Manchester I have had to watch my behaviour on and off the pitch. In Japan and Dortmund I didn’t have so much pressure.
“Three years ago I couldn’t have imagined evolving so quickly and being at a great club like Manchester United. It is proof that you never know what can happen.”
