Shinji Kagawa returns to Borussia Dortmund from Manchester United

Shinji Kagawa has left Manchester United and re-signed for former club Borussia Dortmund for a reported fee of 6.3 million pounds.

Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa has sealed his return to Borussia Dortmund from Manchester United.

The Bundesliga club confirmed that the Japan international, who moved to United in 2012, was back, with the fee being reported as eight million euros.

- Buczko: Kagawa returns to Dortmund

Kagawa, 25, had not been included in the United squad for Saturday's goalless draw at Burnley as speculation that his return to Germany would soon be sealed increased.

Dortmund confirmed that he had signed a four-year contract, and sporting director Michael Zorc said: "The possibility of signing Shinji Kagawa from Manchester United only arose for the first time in the last few days. Naturally, we decided to add his enormous quality to our squad once again."

It means the midfielder will be eligible to play in Dortmund's next Bundesliga match at SC Freiburg on Sept. 13, and he said: "The day I left, I said in an interview that the chapter Borussia Dortmund was not closed in my life.

"I wanted to fulfill my dream of playing in the Premier League. Now I am simply delighted to be back in Dortmund with this fantastic team and setup and these unique fans. BVB is like a family. I am proud that they did not forget me and that I can belong to it once more."

Kagawa originally joined Dortmund from Cerezo Osaka in 2010 and went on to make 49 Bundesliga appearances, scoring 21 goals despite being sidelined for six months with a broken foot, winning the title in 2011 and 2012 and being part of the side that lifted the DFB Pokal 2012.

But he never managed to consistently recapture his Dortmund form while at United, and was told by new coach Louis van Gaal that he was not part of his Old Trafford plans. The Dutchman said Kagawa "did not wish to fulfil my philosophy."

Rumours of his return to Dortmund first surfaced last Thursday, with #freeshinji swiftly trending on Twitter in Germany.

And after news of the player's return was confirmed, left-back Marcel Schmelzer tweeted: "Welcome back, Shinji!"
