Joshua Kimmich is back on Barça’s radar, although the operation could take place in the long term. The newspaper ‘Bild’ affirms that the footballer is already seriously considering his departure from Bayern and that he does not rule out waiting until 2025 to obtain the freedom letter and thus join the Blaugrana club, his preferred destination. Barça has always wanted to sign the German international, but finds it impossible to obtain his signing this summer since the price that Bayern would demand is beyond the current possibilities of the Blaugrana entity.

Kimmich is unhappy at Bayern and his latest frustration came in the match against Werder Bremen this past weekend when the coach, Thomas Tuchel, decided to replace him with the score at 0-1 to attempt a comeback. The midfielder did not take the decision well at all and the team could not improve the result either, which has aggravated the sporting crisis between the player and the club.

The German international’s contract expires in 2025 and there is no renewal agreement because Kimmich himself has stopped the talks. Today his decision is clear and he intends to end his time in the Bavarian team, although he wants to choose his destiny and one of his priorities would be to play for Barça, a club that has always expressed a clear interest in signing him and with whom he has been holding conversations. despite the fact that his signing has never been finalized.

Bayern will continue trying to renew him, but if there is no agreement before the summer they will put him on the market because he is a footballer who attracts many clubs. Liverpool, Arsenal and PSG are on the lookout, but the footballer would prefer to play in the Spanish League. And, above all, in Barça, although for the Blaugrana club his signing would be unfeasible if Bayern does not decide to lower its financial demands. Kimmich would be willing to wait a year to get the freedom letter or force a downward negotiation to play for Barça.

The German club would view very favorably the possibility of a negotiation this summer with Araujo involved, although at Barça this option is not even considered unless the Uruguayan defender wants to opt for leaving the Blaugrana club in the summer, something that neither he nor his surroundings have raised. At Barça they are aware of Kimmich’s wishes and need to sign a top-level midfielder and we will have to see if he forces his departure. Kimmich, with the freedom card, would undoubtedly be one of the market bargains in 2025.
