FC Barcelona is dealing with Joshua Kimmich

After Robert Lewandowski, is another Bayern player leaving Munich for FC Barcelona? According to current media reports, the Catalans have targeted FCB midfield boss Joshua Kimmich.

FC Barcelona and Bayern have not only dueled in sporting terms in recent years, they also often competed for the same players on the transfer market. With Robert Lewandowski there was recently a direct transfer between the two clubs. As the Spanish “SPORT” reports, the Blaugrana has again cast an eye on a Bayern player. This time, midfield boss Joshua Kimmich is the focus of the Catalans.

Barça are looking for a successor for Busquets

After 17 years at FC Barcelona, ​​club legend Sergio Busquets is set to leave the club at the end of the season. According to consistent media reports, the 34-year-old is drawn to the US MLS for Beckham club Inter Miami. The Spanish national player is contractually bound to Barcelona until the summer of 2023. A (re)extension excludes the former homegrown.

As “SPORT” wants to know, the Barça bosses have three potential successors on the list: Rodrigo Hernandez (Manchester City), Martin Zubimendi (Real Sociedad) and Joshua Kimmich from the German record champions. According to the newspaper, Bayern’s financial pain threshold for the 27-year-old is estimated at 80 million euros.

Kimmich is not for sale

Even if FC Barcelona is in financial trouble, the club still has a certain radiance, as the past summer transfer window shows. Nevertheless, a Kimmich transfer currently seems more than unlikely. The German national player only extended his contract on the Isar by four more years in the summer of 2021 and is one of the absolute regular players and top performers in Munich.

Despite the increasing (sporting) criticism of Kimmich in recent months, the native of Rottweiler is an absolute cornerstone of Bavaria and is considered unsaleable. Kimmich is not only a leader on the field, but also takes on a lot of responsibility off it.
