Kagawa: I can take the pressure
Kagawa attended his first United media event at Old Trafford on Thursday and it quickly became apparent what an attraction he is going to be.
"I definitely feel the attention of the media globally now that I am a member of a great squad like Manchester United," said Kagawa, who has pledged to learn the language quickly. "Everything here at the club shows me I have come somewhere really big.
"But I think I can take the pressure. I am pretty confident I can adapt to the style of the Premier League."
Kagawa will be the star attraction on the early part of United's pre-season tour, which begins on Monday with a flight to Durban for the first of two games in South Africa.

Ferguson is keen to make at least one further addition, having also completed the signing of 18-year-old Nick Powell from Crewe. "When the European Championships or the World Cup is on, there is always a delay in the transfer industry," said Ferguson. "Now all that is over we are still trying to get maybe one player in."
Leighton Baines was the name that immediately sprang to mind given how heavily the Everton defender has been linked with United this summer. However, the club's recent transfer history does not indicate the amount they would have to pay for Baines would be invested in a second-choice left-back.
Ferguson refused the opportunity to reveal even which position he was looking at. Despite this, United are still expected to be a major Premier League force this term, with Ferguson's hunger doubtless fuelled by the agonising manner in which his side lost their title to Manchester City last season.
"Red wine helps," was Ferguson's reaction to being asked how he felt about the two goals City scored in stoppage-time to end a 44-year wait for the title.
