    Manchester United will play two pre-season warm-up games in South Africa, against AmaZulu and Ajax Cape Town next month.
    Officials from the club confirmed in Johannesburg on Wednesday that the 19- times English Premier League champions will play at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on July 18 and in the Mother City, at the Cape Town Stadium on July 21.

    This should be Shinji's debut.

    Do I'm reading that kagawa is excluded from the Japanese Olympic team. The point is that kagawa just joined the biggest club in he world and that's probably more important than play for Olympic team. Which is shame because I think with kagawa, Japanese Olympic have a big chance for a medal

    Chicarito's in the same boat as Kagawa too. Young enough for the Olympics, but not established enough to guarantee a place in Man U's first 11 yet either.

    "Even though he suffered from injury last season and yet got to this place I'd rather like him to concentrate on prepering his condition for the next one" said Hara.

    Thanks, he's still not open to discussing the move to Man U. Guess he's still trying to keep things on the DL with a solid poker face, until the personal money related contracts are signed.

    Her father is a former football player so I'm sure that he could meet her through that connection.

    Good luck Shinji!

    Manchester United announced earlier this month that an agreement with Borussia Dortmund had been reached for the transfer of Shinji Kagawa for an undisclosed fee.
    The 23-year-old Japanese midfielder has now passed a medical, obtained a UK work permit and has agreed a four-year contract commencing 1 July 2012.
    Sir Alex Ferguson is delighted to be bringing the midfielder to Old Trafford. He told ManUtd.com: “Shinji is an exciting young midfielder with great skill, vision and a good eye for goal. I am delighted he has chosen to come to United. I believe he will make an impact upon the team very quickly as he is suited to United’s style of play. We are all looking forward to working with him."
    Kagawa himself can't wait to get started as a Red. He told us: “This is a challenge I am really looking forward to. The Premier League is the best league in the world and Manchester United is such a massive club. This is a really exciting time for me and I can’t wait to meet the team and start playing."
