With Manchester United manager David Moyes looking to make changes in Manchester one of the options he is looking at is Riccardo Montolivo. Moyes would be willing to part with Shinji Kagawa, who has not featured much under this season, in exchange for the Italian.
In Milan Kagawa would be joining fellow Japan player Honda, of course. Kagawa, 24, has made 9 premier league appearances so far this season and has no goals. Montolivo has played 18 Serie A games this year and is rated at a €15 million transfer, as is Kagawa.
Kagawa was one of many transfer rumour subjects – linking him to Milan – when he was a Borussia Dortmund player and before he left for Manchester in 2012. His United contract runs until 2016.
