The Japan international's future at Borussia Park has been a hot topic in recent weeks, given that he is about to enter the final year of his contract with the club.

"Should offers come now for Kagawa, we will deal with them and negotiate."

United have been tipped as front-runners in the race for Kagawa's signature, with manager Sir Alex Ferguson present to watch the 23-year-old grab the opening goal in Dortmund's 5-2 DFB-Pokal final victory over Bayern Munich on Saturday.

It is widely reported that the Bundesliga champions will listen to offers in the region of €15 million (£12m) for the former Cerezo Osaka attacker, who moved to Dortmund in 2010 for €350,000 (£280,000).
