Joshua Kimmich is clearly one of the most exciting midfielders of our time, and in his prime. It is no wonder that the leading European teams are interested in him. Manchester City have now joined the crowd and according to 90min, they have a trump card in their hands.
Kimmich is an exceptional player when we are talking about a footballer who is very versatile and can play great in several positions. Moreover, he is in his prime, having celebrated his 28th birthday in February this year.
For some time now, there has been talk in the foreign media that the player himself would like to embark on a new challenge. Not long ago, there was speculation about Barcelona’s interest, where Robert Lewandowski, who shot the Catalan team to the title before this season, is headed.
It is the Munich side, after 10 consecutive league titles, who must hope that Dortmund will drop points in the last league round with Mainz, otherwise Thomas Tuchel’s charges will be watching Borussia celebrate the title.
The aforementioned 90min reported that Pep Guardiola, who had the opportunity to work with him at Bayern, wants the German national team captain at the Etihad Stadium.
The Citizens midfield is slowly but surely starting to age. Two key figures – Ilkay Gündogan (32 years old) and Kevin De Bruyne (31 years old), make competition for Kalvin Phillips, who arrived before the season from Leeds United for 49 million euros. However, he has played only 201 minutes in the Premier League so far and there is more talk of his departure.
It is the arrival of Kimmich that could be very beneficial to keep a healthy competition in the team, as it would definitely significantly increase the quality in the midfield and of course, there would be no problem in case of injuries afterwards.
Joao Cancelo, who has gone on loan to the German team, is believed to serve this purpose and could be part of this swap. In fact, since Thuchel’s arrival on Bayern’s bench, Cancelo has started playing regularly and has been one of the team’s most highly rated players ever since.
However, according to Whoscored, Kimmich is the team’s highest rated player this season and losing him would be another big blow for Bayern, this time coming to Solari.
