This Liverpool transfer rumour won’t make pleasant reading for Man United fans

Robert Redmond

If you’re a Liverpool fan, your day probably can’t get any better.

Jurgen Klopp, one of the world’s most in-demand and charismatic managers, who enjoyed phenomenal success with Borussia Dortmund, is about to become the club’s new boss.

Well, if the latest transfer rumour was to come to fruition, it might be time to pop another bottle of champagne.

Former Manchester United playmaker Shinji Kagawa is being linked with a January move to Anfield.


Kagawa, currently back at Dortmund after an unhappy spell at Old Trafford, enjoyed a close relationship with Klopp during their time together at the Bundesliga club.

Klopp signed the 26 year old in 2010 for €350,000 from Cerezo, a team in Japan’s second division, before the player moved to England in 2012. Liverpool’s incoming manager claimed he felt despair to see the player being played out of position at United.

We can probably expect a host of Dortmund players to being linked with a move to Liverpool once Klopp’s arrival has been made official.
