Manchester United have made their first signing of the summer after confirming they have “reached agreement” to buy Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund.
United said in a statement they expected the transfer to be completed by the end of June and have already agreed terms with the attacking midfielder, who has been a revelation in Germany over the past two seasons.

No details of the fee were released but German media reported that Kagawa, who has a contract with Dortmund until 2013, would cost United £14 million.
United missed out on Belgium international Eden Haazard, who completed his £32 million transfer to Chelsea on Monday, but the imminent signing of Kagawa gives them some much-needed creativity in midfield.
His two-year spell in the Bundesliga saw Kagawa become one of German football's most impressive playmakers.
Kagawa signed for Dortmund from Cerezo Osaka for a fee of just 350,000 euros (£280,000) in the summer of 2010 and helped the German club secure the Bundesliga title in his first season at Signal Iduna Park.
