Liverpool, PSG and Barcelona are all interested in Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich but in the end, Manchester City might end up signing him.

Joshua Kimmich has been with Bayern since 2015 but his current contract with the club expires in 2025 and he’s no closer to signing a new deal. Bayern are still trying to make him sign a new contract but if nothing materializes the Bavarians will consider selling him this summer.

Kimmich’s current situation has brought in a lot of attention with some of the biggest clubs keen to bring him on board but Man City might be leading the race in this battle.

Barcelona are perhaps standing at the end of the queue because they cannot afford to pay any major transfer fee for Joshua Kimmich which is why they are waiting for the summer of 2025 when the midfielder will be a free agent.

Liverpool, Man City and PSG, however, are all ready to pounce at the end of the season because if the contract talks don’t move forward then Kimmich will be available for a cut-price deal.

The central midfielder is currently valued at €75 million but if he is put up for sale in the summer Bayern cannot quote anything more than €55-60 million for him.

Joshua Kimmich played under Pep Guardiola in his early days at Bayern and the Man City manager is likely to use his connection to bring the midfielder to the Etihad Stadium.

City missed out on Declan Rice last summer and both Matheus Nunes and Kalvin Phillips have turned out to be failures so signing a new central midfielder is a priority for the European champions.

Liverpool, PSG and possibly Barcelona will give it their best shot at signing Joshua Kimmich during the summer window but honestly speaking, joining MCFC is his best option. Phillips and Nunes have no future at the club while Mateo Kovacic is a backup player so Kimmich can come in and slot straight in alongside Rodri in central midfield.

However, it’s still early days because the German international has shown no discontent at Bayern so there’s every chance he could still put pen to paper on a new deal.
