Harry Kane maintains Bayern Munich always felt like the right choice for his next club as the England striker prepares to face Manchester United in the Champions League.
Kane left Tottenham for Bayern in a deal which could be worth up to £100million ahead of the summer transfer window closing.
Reports suggested United were one of the English clubs also interested in the 30-year-old forward.
@HKane: "United are going through a tough period and we're expecting a reaction from them. We want to control the game at our home ground, but have to be wary of their strengths. We have to make sure we create enough chances."#FCBMUN #UCL pic.twitter.com/R6Wl9GmBvN

“Obviously over the summer I know there were some talks between a few clubs in the background, but Bayern were a team I was really interested and excited by,” the England captain said ahead of Wednesday night’s Group A opener at the Allianz Arena.
“There were not too many other discussions once they came in. It was between them and Tottenham to talk and then the deal got done.
“My focus is on here. Manchester United are a great club, a really big club as well. I just decided to come here and am really happy I have.”
