(ANSAmed) - ROME, JUNE 8 - A Japanese player is the first shot fired by Alex Ferguron in his fight to get Manchester United to the top of the rankings in England and Europe. The Red Devils have acquired Shinji Kagawa from Borussia, who was one of the determinant factors in getting the German National Championship, is now going to Manchester for about 20 million euros. Centre-field striker, the 23-year-old Kagawa managed 29 goals in 71 matches on Borussia. Leaving England, on the other hand, is the Dutch attacker Dirk Kuyt, who has said farewell to Liverpool with a three-year contract from Fenerbahce: about a million euros will be going to the Reds. Departing Turkey and headed for Italy is instead Burak Yolmaz, the star of Trabzonspor and recent winner of the rankings of the top scorers in his home country: the national team's attacker is extremely close to being transferred to Lazio, which is ready to shell out 6 million euros to have him. More will be required (almost 30 million) to take Thomas Muller away from Bayern Monaco, but the idea is well-liked by Inter fans. The German attacker has spent a good deal of time warming the bench on Bayern this year and has publicly said that he was ready to change clubs: Inter coach Moratti will be doing his best. Another star player on Bayern which sparks interest in many is Philipp Lahm, the outfielder who is on Jose' Mourinho's agenda as someone he would like to bring to Real Madrid to bolster the wings. However, the negotiations have a high price tag on them: for the half-back at least 35 million will be required - a dizzying figure even for Milan's gems. The Paris Saint Germain of Emir Al-Thani will soon be announcing Lavezzi, but is also making a try for Ibrahimovich and Thiago Motta with offers of 50 million euros for each of the players: Milan is holding in there, but the stakes may rise even higher. Thirty million euros in investment are also in the works for Juventus, which is extremely close to taking defense player Mauricio Isla and the centrefielder Kwadwo Asamoah away from Udinese: they are expected to be the two men to be negotiated for by Juventus, which after winning the Italian title is now trying for a lead position in the Champions League. Aiming to strengthen the defense is also Chelsea: President Abramovich seems inclined to keep Roberto Di Matteo on the bench and is now trying to make a play for Marouane Fellaini, the Belgian defense player of Moroccan origins playing on the Everton team and assessed at being worth 21 million euros. Another Moroccan born of parents who emigrated to Belgium is the centrefield striker Omar El Kaddouri, who is expected to move to Juventus from Brescia soon. On his way directly from North Africa, on the other hand, Egypt to be precise, is Ahmed Hegazy, the new defense player on the Fiorentina team. The 21-year-old player is already playing on the national team and has come to Italy directly from the Ismaily Sporting Club. Didier Drogba is instead being tempted by an Arab offer. The Champions League hero has left Chelsea and had seemed to want to finish off his career in China, but over the past few hours Al-Wasl under Diego Maradona's training has come forward with an offer to bring the striker to the UAE.
