Tottenham striker Harry Kane has hinted at the next club by saying that Kevin De Bruyne as the Premier League star he would most like to play with – amid rumours linking him with a move to Manchester City.
The league champions are joined by Chelsea and Manchester United in chasing down the 27-year-old after he told Tottenham he wanted to leave.
It is thought Kane would prefer a move to the Etihad and the opportunity to work with playmaker De Bruyne appears to be a tempting one.
During an episode of The Overlap, the striker was asked by Gary Neville who he dreams of playing in front of.
Kane didn’t hesitate and replied: “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.
“You see 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.”
The England star is expected to cost north of £120m in terms of a transfer fee, despite his warning to chairman Daniel Levy that the club will never make as much money through a sale as they will now.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the reason Harry Maguire may not be available for the Europa League final between the Red Devils and Villarreal next week, but will give his captain every chance to prove his fitness for the game in Gdansk.
Maguire, who damaged ankle ligaments against Aston Villa earlier this month, raised hopes over his availability when he was seen without crutches or a protective boot on Thursday night.
But Solskjaer dampened the optimism by admitting that the England defender is still a some way off being fit.
“He’s walking but it’s a long way from walking to running,” said the United boss.
“To be honest I don’t think we’ll see him in Gdansk, no, but I’m going to give him until Tuesday night and the last training session to be out there. Steadily but surely he’s improving – but ligaments take time to heal.”
Solskjaer would still expect Maguire to play a part in Poland, adding: “He’s a very important person in the dressing-room and a leader.
“Before fans came back in you heard him from the stands. He wants the team to do well, he’s organising from the stands. It’s easy because it’s been so quiet. He’ll make sure everyone’s ready for the final.”
