The box-to-box midfielder has now confirmed to Sky Germany that three Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, tabled an offer for him.

However, Can went onto state that he gladly rejected the offer from the Red Devils due to his love for Liverpool.

“I have always had an extreme sympathy for BVB. I wanted to go to a club for which I can be important where I am needed,” Can told Kicker.

“That’s the case in Dortmund. Borussia suits me well – and vice versa.

“I had three Premier League deals alone, including one from Manchester United, but I didn’t think about that for a second because of my Liverpool past.”

Can has made an impressive start to his Dortmund career and has started every game for the Bundesliga giants following his move.
