Yes, we've known that this was coming for a while now, but today Manchester United officially announced the capture of attacking midfielder Shinji Kagawa on a long-term deal from Borussia Dortmund.

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.

Kagawa will be an exciting addition to the United team and is definitely a +10 fantasy signing.
