Like Lewandowski? Kimmich reportedly ready to force Barcelona transfer

Does Joshua Kimmich do like Robert Lewandowski and leave FC Bayern for Barcelona? According to Spanish media reports, the 28-year-old midfielder wants to force a summer move to the Catalans.

FC Barcelona are interested in Joshua Kimmich. Even though the club has four well-known central midfielders in Gavi, Pedri, Frenkie de Jong and Franck Kessie, they are looking for a successor to Sergio Busquets. Barça coach Xavi Hernandez makes no secret of the fact that he would very much like to have Bayern’s midfield boss in his team.

Even if Kimmich is considered unsaleable in Munich, the 43-year-old considers a change in the summer quite possible: “Kimmich is a top man, he understands the game fantastically. He’s under contract with FC Bayern, so it’s up to him. But look at Lewandowski. He wanted to come.”

Messi’s cancellation could pave the way for Kimmich

As the Spanish “Mundo Deportivo” reports, “Kimmich is playing with the idea of ​​starting a new adventure abroad.” Particularly spicy: According to the newspaper, the German international is even ready to “fight” for a move to FC Barcelona – like Robert Lewandowski in the summer of 2022.

At the time, the Pole made it clear publicly that he absolutely wanted to leave Bayern Munich. He ended up joining the Catalans for €45m.

Due to Lionel Messi’s failed return, Barça has a little more leeway in terms of salary, according to “Mundo Deportivo”. It remains unclear how the highly indebted club wants to pay for Kimmich.

One thing is clear: Kimmich is not for sale at Bayern Munich. The midfielder has a contract until 2025, so the Munich team has the upper hand. However, the reports from Spain will not stop until Kimmich himself comments on the current speculation.
