Borussia Dortmund midfielder Emre Can says he would “never play” for Man Utd due to his past wit their arch-rivals Liverpool.

The Germany international is currently on loan at Dortmund following a disappointing time at Juventus since leaving Anfield in 2018.

There have been rumours floating around over the last six months that Can is a target for Man Utd but the 26-year-old claims he would “never” move to Old Trafford.

“The comparison fits,” Can told SportBILD (via Sport Witness) when discussing comparisions between Man Utd and Bayern Munich.

“Both are record champions and have huge strength. In addition, big names like Bastian Schweinsteiger and Owen Hargreaves played for both clubs.

“But I would never play for United because of my time in Liverpool. My heart won’t let me do that. The rivalry between the clubs is really huge.”

When asked if Dortmund and Liverpool compare, Can added: “I sign it 100 per cent.

“When I came to Dortmund in winter, I compared a lot of things here with Liverpool.

“The clubs are really similar, have a familiar environment and unique fans. And: Both love Jürgen Klopp!”
