Manchester United midfielder Ji-Sung Park believes Shinji Kagawa would make a big impression at Old Trafford should he make a move from Borussia Dortmund.

The Japanese midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to United, and has admitted having met with manager Sir Alex Ferguson concerning a potential move to the Premier League.

Park, who switched from PSV Eindhoven to United in 2005, insists that Kagawa will be a success at the 19-time league champions should he make the move this summer.

"Kagawa already has experience in Europe and good quality," Park said. "If he comes to United, I think he'll play well."

The 23-year-old would join a United side who are reeling from having lost out in the Premier League title race to Manchester City, as Sergio Aguero struck late against Queens Park Rangers to deny United a 13th league crown.

Despite looking likely for much of the final day of the season to end up top of the pile, the writing was on the wall for United after they lost in the Manchester derby to City.

Park started for the first time in three months at the Etihad Stadium, but was nullified by the physicality of Yaya Toure, as Sir Alex Ferguson's side were defeated.

"It was disappointing season but past is past, I'll focus on what to do from now on," Park added.

"It's true that I want to retire at United, but it does not depend on me.

"Season is over now; I just want to take a rest not thinking about anything."

Kagawa has helped spearhead a Dortmund side which has won the Bundesliga title and German cup this season; however after rejecting a new contract is expected to lead an exodus this summer.

Robert Lawandowski and Mario Gotze are among those who have also impressed for Jurgen Klopp's side, who will play in the Champions League next season.

Having lost out on the title on goal difference, United are expected to overhaul their squad this summer to help compete with neighbours City, themselves likely to be active this summer.
