The Bundesliga champions insist they will not consider a cut-price offer, despite the Japanese playmaker entering the final year of his contract
Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund have warned Manchester United that they will not let Shinji Kawaga leave on the cheap this summer.
The Japan international has made it clear he wants to move and has set his sights on the Premier League.
United are believed to be frontrunners to secure the talented playmaker's signature after manager Sir Alex Ferguson paid a personal visit to watch the player in the German Cup Final - where he scored as Dortmund completed a domestic double by beating Bayern Munich.
However, Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke insists the club will demand a high transfer despite the 23-year-old nearing the end of his contract - citing Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer's move to Bayern Munich as an example.
"It's pretty obvious what Shinji's qualities are, how old he is and how valuable he is for this team. Then I look at the money Bayern paid for Manuel Neuer. He had one year left on his contract, too. You can derive a sum from that," said Watzke.
Bayern paid Schalke an initial transfer of €18 million for Neuer, with the fee potentially rising to €25m.
