Reports originating from Spain have sparked excitement among Barcelona fans, as the Catalan club is believed to have a genuine chance of acquiring Bayern Munich’s star player, Joshua Kimmich.
According to sources at MD, the influential midfielder is seeking a new challenge after the surprising dismissal of Julian Nagelsmann in March. Kimmich has encountered personal struggles within the Bayern dressing room during a season fraught with difficulties, prompting him to explore a change of scenery for the upcoming campaign.
Barcelona has emerged as an enticing option that would benefit both the player and the club. With Sergio Busquets nearing the twilight of his career, Kimmich’s arrival would alleviate concerns about the team’s ability to cope without him. Furthermore, the esteemed former Barcelona player and current manager, Xavi Hernandez, holds a high regard for Kimmich. Additionally, the German midfielder shares a close bond with Marc-Andre ter Stegen from their time together in the national team. At 28 years old, Kimmich brings a wealth of experience and currently captains the German national team.
