I think Fergie values adaptability. United players are expected to adapt to different tactics and different positions.
If Kagawa can do this - and it certanily looks like he has more than enough in his locker - then he would be a big plus to Fergie's philosophy in managing a football team.
I am actually excited by this addition - assuming it materializes. Like the rest of you, I hope to see the emergence or acquisition of a left-back that can challenge and eventually usurp Evra. I also foresee Berba leaving and a striker being acquired to meet United's standard requirement of 4 top tier strikers. I do not foresee any additional midfield acquisition unless someone leaves the club. Should everyone be fit, we have Carrick, Scholes, Cleverley, Anderson, Park, Kagawa, Fletcher that can play in that role.
Powell would be a direct replacement for Pogba - and one for the future. So I expect Kagawa, a striker and a left-back to be acquired in the close season.
