Kagawa joined the Red Devils from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2012, but has struggled to make a huge impact in English football.

The 25-year-old made 20 Premier League starts for United during their championship-winning campaign of 2012/13, and has started just 13 league fixtures this term.

With United set to appoint a new manager in the summer, there have been suggestions that Kagawa might be on his way out of Old Trafford.

Serie A outfit Napoli have been linked with a move for the former Cerezo Osaka star, but the player's agent has insisted that coach Rafael Benitez has no made no contact with him.

"Has Benitez made contact with Kagawa? These are just rumours," Thomas Kroth told Ultimecalcionapoli.it.

"He is not unhappy at Manchester United, so there's no reason to talk about him departing to another club."

If Moyes was still coach, this would read "Kagawa looking for exit door". Luckily with new coach incoming who likes keeping the ball and playing total football, Kagawa should thrive.

Also Kagawa really seems to like United and the PL. And I for one am rooting for him to succeed as he seems like a really nice guy as we have never heard any complaints from him despite his lack of playing time or even the fact he was often shunted on the wing with no ball playing players to compliment him.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
