Manchester City have shown interest in signing Joshua Kimmich from Bayern Munich, and the club’s position on a potential deal has been revealed by Sam Lee, a correspondent for The Athletic.

According to The Athletic, Manchester City recognizes the challenge of signing Kimmich from Bayern Munich this summer, and there is a sense of cautiousness about the likelihood of completing the deal. Despite this, Txiki Begiristain is looking into various methods to finalize the signing as the club seeks to replace Kalvin Phillips.

Kimmich will have only one year left on his contract with Bayern Munich at the end of the season, and the Daily Star suggests that his value may decrease to around £25m by that time. Furthermore, the same source claims that the 28-year-old player is eager to reunite with Pep Guardiola, who he previously worked with at Bayern Munich.

Kimmich has made 23 appearances in all competitions for Bayern Munich this season, contributing one goal and six assists. Additionally, he expressed his willingness to work with Guardiola again in 2019, emphasizing his gratitude for the opportunities provided by the coach.

During his time under Guardiola at Bayern Munich, Kimmich played 36 games, delivering two assists as he and Bayern Munich secured the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal. Given their previous success and relationship, Kimmich’s potential move to Manchester City to reunite with Guardiola is likely to be eagerly anticipated by fans.

As Manchester City continues its pursuit of Kimmich, the prospect of securing a player of his experience and talent would be a major coup. The admiration and respect he has for Guardiola and the success they achieved together at Bayern Munich further enhance the allure of a potential deal.
