Joshua Kimmich is apparently being pursued by Paris Saint-Germain, who will likely make a move for the star this month or in the summer, giving Manchester City competition.
According to recent reports, City is seriously considering moving for Kimmich in the summer, when his market worth will have dropped. Given that he would only have one year remaining on his contract, he may cost up to £25 million.
Given that Kimmich is a vital player for Bayern Munich and that Fabrizio Romano has indicated he won’t be leaving this month, a summer transfer seems more likely.
The 28-year-old’s potential asking price of £25 million may not come as a surprise, given that other clubs are also considering the player.
PSG is putting pressure on Manchester City to acquire Joshua Kimmich.
According to a report published by L’Equipe yesterday, Kimmich is being pursued by Paris Saint-Germain, and Nordi Mukiele may be heading somewhere in a different trade.
ADVANCED CITY STORIES
Reporter Florian Plettenberg provided an update on Kimmich tonight, reiterating Romano’s statement that he did not leave the club in January.
He does, however, add that PSG, along with City, are interested in the player and that they might make a summer move for him.
He continues by saying there is no connection between the interest in Kimmich and the ongoing negotiations for the Mukiele sale.
It appears that the Champions League team is already thinking about the upcoming campaign, and acquiring Kimmich would definitely improve both their team and City’s.
To Kimmich, City needs to defeat PSG.
It appears that PSG realised that Kimmich would be a great value in a possible £25 million trade this summer.
City must prevent the French powerhouses from gaining an advantage over the 28-year-old, who Jose Mourinho has already called “phenomenal.”
This player has the ability to propel City’s team to new heights. It seems a little unfair for him to play behind Rodri when players like Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne are right behind him and may lead to dominance.
It makes sense that PSG would also like him. Naturally, Kimmich has won the Champions League with Bayern, which is the one title they so much want to win.
