Kagawa Deal Almost Sorted

Kagawa Deal Almost Sorted

Reports, on various news sources, imply that a deal for Shinja Kagawa is all but done.

Those reports infer that an initial fee of £12 million has been agreed for the Borussia Dortmund playmaker with that fee rising to £17 million if his progress matches expectations.

All that remains for the deal to be completed is for the Japanese international to pass his medical and obtain a UK work permit; neither is expected to present a problem and should be completed before the end of the month.

Will chuffed when this is finalised. He's a quality player and could potentially be signing of the season.

Nah! That'll be Eden Hazard, mark my words!

You Chelsea fans said the same thing about Torres and Shevchenko. Plus it's hardly a steal at 35 mil, ultimately if Hazard succeeds it'll only be what you paid for in the transfer fee.

Hazard is probably the better player, but Kagawa will be far better value at half the price. united have pulled off a decent signing who should do quite well for them - without the hefty agents fees, the ego or the huge wages. Surprised City didn't have a look at Kagawa, although to be fair, we're reasonably well stocked in that area already and need wingers more than playmakers. Good luck to him, at least he's guaranteed starts at united given their dearth of options in midfield!

Fcb one of the few things I've criticised, well not really criticised but just noticed is your lack of width. However with the system you've adopted could you ever seen Mancini playing wingers in the more traditional sense? Will that ever be an option he employs? Personally I can only ever see him using the fullbacks to provide the width without ever really opting for wingers but more wide playmakers coming in field onto their stronger foot. Which makes me wonder if you will keep your only natural winger in Johnson or sell him on soon and get someone who fits your bill.

Don't suppose you'd know if Hazards supposed quote: "with all respect to chelsea i'd rather join a club with history such as arsenal or liverpool" - is genuine would ya?

Not sure Famous. A lot of us have wondered if Mancini simply prefers a narrower style of play and doesn't choose to use wingers, or whether he's still building the team he wants. Last summer's number one target was Alexis Sanchez, and we've also been linked with the likes of Angel Di maria in the past - both more or less orthodox wingers. Johnson, whilst a decent player, does tend to go missing in a lot of games. He's improving, but I suspect if Mancini can find a better replacement(s) that he wouldn't hesitate to sell Johnson on for a healthy profit. No secret that a lot of fans would like to see a winger or two brought in, if only to provide a few crosses to Dzeko, but I'm not going to second guess the manager that has won us 2 trophies in 2 seasons!

Fair play, well what 2 wingers would you like to see sign?

Good question! Not exactly an orthodox winger, but plays wide left - Lavezzi would be a great addition to our squad. Other players that interest me would be Ibrahim Affellay, Gaston Ramirez, Arjen Robben, Arda Turan, Sebastian Giovinco and of course Gareth Bale. Not sure how many of them would be available and affordable (Spurs would want stupid money for Bale), but I thinkl all of these players can operate on the wing, but have the skills to move inside when required. I'm sure Mancini has his eyes on the players he wants, and who knows, they might not have made my list!
