Shinji Kagawa: “I want a new challenge”

Updated: July 22, 2018

Yesterday Shinji Kagawa trained in Osaka and participated in a charity event for the Western Japan disaster relief.

When asked about the possibility of a transfer he told Sponichi: “That will (be discussed) later. First I have to go back to Dortmund. At the moment there’s nothing concrete to talk about.”

At the event he said he wants “a new challenge” and to “create a more (challenging) environment”.

Kagawa has been linked with a move to Turkish giants Besiktas in recent days, as they look to replace the to China departed Anderson Talisca at the no10 position. The Black Eagles have reportedly made first contact with Dortmund according to TRT Spor and have even tabled a €2,5m loan bid according to Turkish newspaper Milliyet.
