Borussia Dortmund star Shinji Kagawa has revealed that he won't be deciding on his future until after his side clashes with Bayern Munich in the German Cup final, also known as the DFB-Pokal, on May 12. The Japan international's current contract with the German champions expires at the end of the 2012/13 season and he recently turned down a new contract offer from the club. It's been widely speculated that the attacker is keen on a move to the Premier League and he's been heavily linked with Manchester United. German media outlet Bild has even reported that United have offered Kagawa a three-year contract for €6 million per season. When asked about what his next move will be in regards to his future, here is how Kagawa responded:

"I have not taken a decision just now. I will only decide after the match against Bayern Munich and it will be after long discussions with my agent. I am pleased to get massive support from the Dortmund supporters and the Dortmund crowd in recent weeks. This is just fine, I am enjoying this very much. We are now trying to even more win the remaining match against Bayern Munich in the German Cup. It would be our fifth straight win against Bayern and would be even more of an icing on the cake. To win the Bundesliga and the German Cup in one season would be just great."
