“Very strong, brilliant with his head, it could be possible that he could score a lot of goals in the Bundesliga,” he told reporters. “But it will be tough for Bayern Munich [to sign Kane], we will see what will happen in the future.”
However, Son is hoping that he and Kane will extend their successful record-breaking run together for years to come and believes they share the same passion for scoring goals, which can help them improve their respective tallies next season.
“We have already made 41 goals together,” he added. “What Kane and I really have in common is that we both have a lot of greed and have the strong will to always improve. Even beyond football skills, our mindsets are similar.”
“I want to continue the record that I have set with a team-mate like this, although our record will be broken one day. Even when we’re training, if one of us makes an assist for the other’s goal, we joke around saying, ‘Hey, it’s our 42nd goal now?’”
Having scored eight goals between them in pre-season, Kane and Son are expected to line up together once more as Conte’s men travel to Southampton on the opening day of the season on August 6.
