Shunsuke Nakamura is coming home

I had been waiting on this one for a bit but after confirming, the deal to bring Blue Samurai Shunsuke Nakamura of home to play for Yokohama F. Marinos is said to be “done.”

Shunsuke started his professional career Yokohama Marinos in 1997 (upon the 1999 merger with Yokohama Flügels added the “F” prefix to their name) before moving to Reggina in Serie A and eventually to Celtic in the summer of 2005. This return home would be a perfect closing note to his career, satisfy many of his personal goals within his family that he has been anxious to deal with as well as be a tremendous boost to Nissan-owned Yokohama. The terms of the deal are said to involve a transfer in the range of €6.5.
