Manchester United have just confirmed the rumours which have been circulating for some time. Shinji Kagawa has returned to his former club, Borussia Dortmund, on a permanent deal which is thought to be around £6m.
With little more than 24hrs of the summer transfer window remaining, Shinji Kagawa has agreed to rejoin Borussia Dortmund after what can only be considered as a disappointing two year spell at Manchester United.
German newspaper, Bild, are reporting that Kagawa has agreed terms earlier today with United receiving a fee of just £6.
Shinji Kagawa has left Manchester United after just two seasons to return to Borussia Dortmund, the club from which United had signed him in the summer of 2012.
Dortmund are believed to have paid around £7m for the 25-year-old, half of what they received for him two years ago, with the Japanese's price-tag driven down by two difficult seasons, during which he never managed to establish himself as regular starter at United, despite arriving at Old Trafford amid much promise.

by Jack Dowell
The Bundesliga 2014/15 got underway this weekend and wasted no time in restoring last season's breathtaking entertainment as records were smashed, history was made and shocks and surprises sprung up across Germany's stadia.
Tim Howard may be taking a break from the U.S. Men's National Team, but he will still have plenty of big games to keep him busy over the next year with Everton.
The first of those tough tests awaits today against high-flying Arsenal. The Gunners come in off a last-minute victory in their opener, and they face a Toffees side that will be desperate to avoid starting the season off by dropping points in two straight matches.
From Matthäus to Lewandowski: Bayern Munich's top 10 domestic transfer steals is a post from: Just Football
With Bayern Munich set to face Wolfsburg in the seasonal opener, the Bundesligais back for the 2014-15 season. And with it has arrived the latest installment of the increasingly tense relations between title-winners Munich and their most-talented rival, Borussia Dortmund.
Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez has been ruled out until 2015 after suffering cruciate knee ligament damage during Wednesday's German Supercup defeat to Borussia Dortmund. The Spain international was carried off on a stretcher half an hour into the match at Signal Iduna Park after staying down following an aerial challenge and tests have revealed the 25-year-old's injury is a serious one.
When Bayern Munich lost to the MLS All-Stars early this month, supporters shrugged it off as just a preseason friendly. But after today's 2-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup, will some of Pep Guardiola's critics be sounding the alarm?
The challenge for Guardiola this season is that most of his side were the backbone of the German national side that won the World Cup this season.
The 2013-14 Bundesliga campaign saw Bayern Munich cruise through the Bundesliga campaign, topping rivals Borussia Dortmund by 29 points. However, when the two teams clashed Wednesday in the DFL-SuperCup, it was Dortmund that proved to be the dominant side.

The last few weeks of the summer transfer market always deserve some attention due to unexpected transfers, both concerning top players and bargain deals. In the last few years, during the final stages of the transfer window, Italian supporters have become used to seeing top players leaving rather than arriving in their league.
Fresh from the news that its appeal against a two-window transfer ban was rejected by FIFA, Barcelona is considering signing Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund and Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina, according to reports emanating from the Catalan press.
The transfer ban is set to take effect at the beginning of September 2014 and end at the start of January 2016.
Overachieving was a theme for both Liverpool and Southampton in their last campaigns, but each side has been active in this summer's transfer market. While Southampton has off-loaded several players from last year's extremely talented squad, Liverpool has sold Luis Suarez, but made an extensive amount of purchases to increase depth ahead of its first Champions League campaign since the turn of the decade.
Liverpool completed their last pre-season fixture at Anfield on Sunday as the Reds faced the German side Borussia Dortmund. Jurgen Klopp's team have been a formidable force in the Bundesliga making this a glittering tie in front of the Anfield faithful who are preparing for another season hopefully packed full of surprises.
