Manchester United have signed Borussia Dortmund attacker Shinji Kagawa for an undisclosed fee.
A statement on the Red Devils website read: “Manchester United is delighted to announce that it has agreed terms with both Borussia Dortmund and Shinji Kagawa for his transfer to the Club.
“The deal is subject only to the player medical and obtaining a UK work permit.
“These conditions are anticipated to be completed by the end of June. Further details will be announced in due course.”
The 23-year-old had been linked with a move to Sir Alex Ferguson’s side more strongly since Chelsea secured the signature of Eden Hazard.
The transfer went through on June 5, just three days before Kagawa takes his place in Japan’s side for their AFC Group B World Cup qualifier against Jordan.
The Japanese international helped win the Bundesliga for the second consecutive year with Borussia Dortmund last season and was named in the Bundesliga team of the season.
