I won't give you the money, even though you may give me some money in the future, honest

Conflict-of-interest-filter: I work for X as a consultant. One of our roles is advising a client A how much they should pay Y. Recently the consultant arm of Y has approached me about potentially working for them in the future. I am genuinely interested in the job and have satisfied myself that I could consider this without affecting my judgement in advising client A, but am concerned about how it could look to outsiders. Advice?

-I work as part of a wider team advising client A, not just on my own,
-I am generally very thorough in keeping my notes in case anything untoward was ever suggested so that I could prove otherwise, but would prefer it not to come to that!
-The approach from Y is still at an early stage, no concrete offer, but has been indicated an offer would be substantially above my current pay with firm X
-Given the early stage I am not particularly keen to mention it explicitly yet to my current firm X or client Y
(Anonymous as it would be very clear to anyone who knows me who Y is)
