Harry Kane has suggested that he would welcome a move to Manchester City in order to play alongside Kevin De Bruyne.
The Tottenham striker indicated this week that he is looking to leave Tottenham at the end of the season in order to enhance his career.
United are understood to have made an approach to Spurs, while Chelsea are reportedly willing to offer players in exchange for the England captain.
But Kane appears to have sent a clear message to Manchester City by making it clear that he would relish the prospect of lining up in the same side as De Bruyne.
When asked to name the Premier League player he believes could improve his game, Kane told Sky Sports: ‘De Bruyne, for sure.
‘When I watch De Bruyne play he’s a special, special player and some of the balls I see him put in for City are just a striker’s dream if I’m honest.
‘But yeah he’s outstanding, you’ve seen it year in year out, he’s an outstanding player with the ball, off the ball, pressing. But his delivery is as good as I’ve ever seen to be honest.’
Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with a move for Kane but the Tottenham striker has indicated that he is not interested in leaving the Premier League.
‘I guess for me I think injuries would be, be the biggest thing [to miss out on Premier League all-time goalscorer record],’ said the striker.
‘Of course there’s always the option of maybe moving abroad one day but I don’t think that really interests me in the near future.
‘I feel like I’ve got a good seven or eight years at the top. When you look kind of the [Lionel] Messis, your [Cristiano] Ronaldos, your [Zlatan] Ibrahimovics, they all kind of getting better as they reach their early 30s. I’m still 27 so I’ve still got hopefully a long way to go so I mean yeah it’s definitely there.
‘I’m still way off but you know I like to think consistently I’ve scored 20-plus goals in my injury-free seasons in the Premier League. So if I can do that for the next four or five years then I’ll be there.’
