Manchester United first team coach Rene Meulensteen feels new signing Shinji Kagawa is a complete player and cannot wait for him to make his debut.
United have successfully agreed a deal with Borussia Dortmund to bring the Japan international to the club.
Kagawa began his career at J.League side Cerezo Osaka before plying his trade in the Bundesliga with Dortmund and securing two successive titles.
Meulensteen has been a significant admirer of the playmaker’s performances and believes his side have signed a top-class attacking talent.
“I rank Kagawa very highly,” the coach told Goal.com.
“He’s a player that I’ve known for a while because I keep an eye on the German Bundesliga. He’s done very well over there. I think he’s a player that will fit Manchester United and complement us.
“At Dortmund, Kagawa played behind the striker which is a good position for him to play. He’s got great movement, a great way to find spaces.
“He gets behind the opposition in the midfield which means that he can help in possession or be direct in moving forward. He can play the ball quick, one touch or two touch.
“He can create chances and he can score goals, he’s got the complete package of what you would want from an attacking midfielder.
“He can also play on either wing or even deeper in the midfield. So, he’s a very versatile player.”
