Harry Kane has named the only two teams who can challenge Man City for Champions League

Harry Kane has named the only two teams who are capable of challenging Manchester City for the Champions League title this season.

Kane has excelled since making the switch to Bayern Munich from Tottenham Hotspur this summer, scoring 22 goals in 18 appearances for the Bundesliga club.

His efforts have helped Thomas Tuchel's side top their Champions League group with two games to spare, as they book their place in the knockout rounds.

And the Englishman has had his say on who can challenge current holders Manchester City, who have also secured progression to the round of 16.

Speaking back in May, Kane claimed that Bayern Munich and Spanish giants Real Madrid, who have also topped their group, were the only two teams who could challenge Pep Guardiola's side for European glory.

His comments could be seen as a subtle dig to Arsenal, who are the only other club in the tournament to top their group with one game remaining.

Asked if he feels that City are a level above any other side in Europe, Kane replied (via The Metro): "I don’t think so.

"We know that City has magnificent players and their level has been very high in recent years with an extraordinary coach like Guardiola.

"From Bayern’s point of view we focus on what we can control and not on our rivals. If we meet Manchester City, we will be prepared for it.

"But all the big clubs have their aspiration to win it and Bayern will be focused on it. They signed me for that.

"The idea of ​​this club is to win all the competitions although it is true that it is a very complicated tournament with great teams.

"We have to go step by step and the first thing is to pass this very difficult match today against United.

"I am very excited to play my first game with Bayern in Europe. The idea is to win it but you have to go step by step and the best step is to start with a victory today.’
