Joshua Kimmich is contractually bound until 2025 and the 28-year-old is already an integral part of the Munich team. Nevertheless, FC Bayern will have to stretch to extend the contract with the midfielder. Otherwise, a sale could take place in summer 2024.
No extension yet – interested parties are queuing up
There should be no shortage of interested parties. In addition to FC Barcelona, Manchester City is also said to have targeted the Bayern star. According to the English portal “TEAMtalk”, Manchester City is “optimistic” that it will be able to carry out a Kimmich transfer next summer. Accordingly, the Skyblues have “great interest” in winning the player over if he comes onto the market.
Ultimately, it’s just a relatively loose rumor so far, with more to come as long as the midfielder hasn’t extended his contract. There are currently no concrete discussions with another club. However, this also applies to the contract negotiations with FC Bayern. However, Christoph Freund and those responsible at Bayern will soon have to approach the 28-year-old and talk to them about an extension.
Kimmich asks for time to think about it
According to “TEAMtalk”, Kimmich would like to think a little more about his future, but staying in Munich is the most likely scenario.
Ultimately, Bayern have to hope that the midfield leader doesn’t run away, where his national team colleagues like Ilkay Gündogan or Toni Kroos also enjoy higher esteem abroad. This could definitely play a larger role in Kimmich’s mind games.
