He'll show his class over the season, no doubt. I'm sure we'll see him pop up with goals here and there, but I don't think anyone can expect another season like he had last year.
Kagawa was United's best outfield player, but during the most decisive moments he was often stepping on Rooney's toes. I think both players like to play in the same sort of manner, and it draws further questions about signing Shinji, who would be better served at a team that press and push higher up the pitch, not play off crosses and quick breaks.
I fear Shinji is going to be misused as a CM or a winger, both positions he isn't suited for.
