Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany could make an extraordinary return to Premier League football this summer.

Kompany’s heroics in a Man City shirt earned him legend status with the Manchester club, as well as etching his name into the Premier League hall of fame. He’s one of the finest defenders ever to grace English football.

The Belgian has now hung up his boots and immediately embarked on his management career, taking the reins at Anderlecht, who sit third in the Belgian Pro League under the stewardship of the 36-year-old.

Despite Kompany being hugely inexperienced, and very young, for a Premier League manager, The Sun believe that there is a top-flight club who are interested in appointing him ahead of next season.

As per the report, Burnley will make an attempt to convince Kompany to move to Turf Moor, should they be successful in their efforts to remain in the Premier League on the final day of the season.

Wolfsburg are also understood to be in the running to appoint Kompany, but you imagine he’d be tempted by the prospect of taking a job in the Premier League. What an appointment that’d be!
