'You've got to dream big' - Barcelona Kamau's ultimate goal

The 21-year-old has taken another step in 2016-17 after joining Melbourne City from Adelaide United but hopes this is just the beginning

Bruce Kamau is relishing his first season at Melbourne City but hasn't stopped dreaming big with the young Australian winger hoping to use the A-League as an avenue to Europe.

Kamau had a breakthrough campaign with Adelaide United last season, playing 18 matches and scoring three goals as the Reds won the premiership-championship double.

Comfort breeds confidence - Kamau

But despite starting in Adelaide's last six matches, including their 3-1 grand final triumph over Western Sydney Wanderers where he scored the opening goal, Kamau decided to leave South Australia before 2016-17 with the aim of being a regular starter.

The 21-year-old has appeared in 16 of City's 17 games and has started 14 - already five more starts than last season - while his performances have been decisive as he leads his new club for assists (6) and is second for successful dribbles (26).

"So far, so good," Kamau told Goal after unveiling Nike's Hypervenom III in Melbourne.

"I came here in search of more game time and I think so far I've achieved that. The team environment that I've come into is great… and I'm enjoying my time here."

In his third year in the A-League, Kamau has proven himself to be one of the competition's most dangerous wingers.

The speedster isn't afraid to discuss his career ambitions - "I'd like to play in Europe" - and has made a smart move by joining City with the club's international connections.

But when asked what his dream transfer would be, it's not Manchester City and the Premier League that comes to mind for Kamau.

"Barcelona is my favourite team, so coming up against them in La Liga would be a dream-come-true, or even playing for them," he said.
