Rio Ferdinand believes Harry Kane is “sick” of watching Erling Haaland’s brilliant start at Manchester City after his failed move to Etihad.

City pushed to sign Kane last summer, hoping to add a new striker to their ranks to replace Sergio Aguero.

For a few weeks, it seemed Kane was trying to force his move away from Tottenham. However, the England captain ultimately decided to stay in north London, where he’s yet to win a trophy.

The Citizens won the Premier League without having a conventional number nine in their lineup but signed Haaland when the season ended.

Ferdinand believes the Norwegian’s fantastic displays in City’s jersey make Kane remember the transfer saga.

“If I were City before Haaland came, I would have taken Kane,” the Manchester United legend said on the FIVE podcast.

“Kane’s a goalscorer, he’s a killer, as cold as you get. In any era he scores goals. I think he would have been brilliant at Man City.

“If I’m him, I’m absolutely puking up in my own mouth and trying not to swallow it when I’m watching Haaland now. I’m thinking that could have been me.”

He added: “That was a moment for Harry Kane to go and say ‘what I’ve done at Tottenham can never be discredited, it’s my home, it’s my place of love’.

“No one would have been disgruntled if he went to City. It was there for the taking. I don’t know how it happened from all parties. He must be sick.”
