AFP - Japan midfielder Shinji Kagawa has joined Manchester United on a four-year deal from German champions Borussia Dortmund for 17 million pounds.
He proved his worth by scoring the only goal in a friendly against Shanghai Shenhua on 25 Jul, forcing the ball home from 10 yards out in the 68th minute following a Bebe cross.
"Kagawa was man of the match and I thought he deserved that," said Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson, adding: "He took his goal well even though it was a deflection.
"Kagawa has settled in really well, he's going to be a really good player for us and I was really impressed with him tonight," added Ferguson.
But the 23-year-old midfielder has been attracting attention online for more than his ball skills.
His girlfriend, 24-year-old adult entertainer Ameri ichinose, is expected to spice up the list of WAGs at Old Trafford, giving Man U fans something else to look forward this coming season.
