Borussia Dortmund midfielder Emre Can has ruled out the possibility of ever joining Manchester United, saying his heart won't allow him to make such a move due to his ties with 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 comparisons between Man United 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%.
"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!"
