Kagawa to head to Manchester for physical


New Manchester United acquisition Shinji Kagawa was set to depart for England on Thursday to undergo a physical.

Earlier in the day, the Japan midfielder visited a primary school in Sendai that was damaged in last year's earthquake and tsunami, and played with the students.

"Do what you can to hold on to a dream and pursue it," the 23-year-old, who played youth soccer in Sendai, told the children.

Kagawa was taking part in a three-day project to assist in the rebuilding of the disaster-hit area by meeting primary school children in Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures.

He is scheduled to have a medical exam on Friday in Manchester and return to Japan on Saturday.
