Japan international midfielder Shinji Kagawa has joined Spanish second tier outfit Real Zaragoza after seven years at Borussia Dortmund in two spells, the Bundesliga side said on Friday.
Kagawa, who won the Bundesliga with Dortmund in 2011 and 2012, had a two-year spell at Manchester United from 2012-14 before returning to the Ruhr valley club.
The 30-year-old struggled for playing time under coach Lucien Favre last season, joining Turkey’s Besiktas on loan in January.
Kagawa decided to continue his career in Spain after signing a two-year deal with the Spanish side.
“Shinji… is a true professional and an outstanding person who will have in Dortmund a second home forever and a lot of friends,” Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke and sports director Michael Zorc said in a statement on the club’s website.
“It was his great wish to play in Spain. We obviously met that wish.”
