Hummels keen on Kagawa return

Mats Hummels would welcome Shinji Kagawa back at the Westfalenstadion, the Borussia Dortmund defender has told kicker.

In 2012, Shinji Kagawa ended his two years at Dortmund, having helped the club win back-to-back Bundesliga titles as well as one DFB-Pokal.

Following his transfer to Manchester United that summer, talk about a possible return of the Japan international has persisted.

When Mario Goetze left Dortmund for Bayern in 2013, the club reportedly made a move for Kagawa, and, a year on from that, he is still being linked with Borussia.

“We would take Shinji with the greatest pleasure,” Hummels told kicker on Monday. “To form an attacking midfield with [Marco] Reus, [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan and Kagawa -- that would absolutely have style. And that’s nothing against our other amazing players. The attacking midfield, also without Shinji, is our best staffed part of the team.”

Asked whether Dortmund lacked a player like Kagawa, Hummels answered: “I think Micki [Mkhitaryan] is a similar player. But, of course, Shinji’s twists are sharper. And Micki has more speed. All in all, there is not a huge difference. But nobody would have anything against having another player with those qualities.”

Hummels himself has been linked with a move away from Dortmund for several years now, with Manchester United and Barcelona among those clubs credited with an interest in his services.  However, speaking to Bild at the weekend, Hummels reiterated that he has no plans to leave Borussia anytime soon.

“When I end my career, I don’t need to win eight championships, I’d rather have done something special. And that has certainly been the case here,” Hummels said. “That’s why I don’t waste any thoughts on this [leaving Dortmund] at the moments. I rather win one championship as a key player than four championships as a part-time player.”
