Joshua Kimmich reportedly received a bid from Bayern Munich last summer, according to ESPN;

Joshua Kimmich, a midfielder for Bayern Munich, was reportedly offered to FC Barcelona just a few weeks ago, according ESPN.


According to sources who spoke to ESPN, Barcelona is accelerating their plans for the upcoming season by looking for a defensive midfielder and two full-backs. In order to give Oriol Romeu some competition at the base of the midfield, coach Xavi Hernandez wants two players for every position on the team.


In addition, Barça is looking to replace Sergi Roberto and Marcos Alonso, the back-ups to Joo Cancelo and Alejandro Balde, with a full-back on either side of the back four. Barça must, however, focus on players who are either without a club or who are entering the final years of their contracts due to their financial situation.


According to sources who spoke to ESPN, Barça received a summer offer for Joshua Kimmich as well. The Germán midfielder’s contract with Bayern Munich expires in 2025, therefore the Catalan club continued to follow the midfielder’s status despite being unable to afford a deal at the time.


In addition to Jorginho of Arsenal, Thiago Alcantara of Liverpool, and Guido Rodriguez of Real Betis, Xavi is a big fan of Kimmich.

Even though it seems highly unlikely, it would be sort of humorous if FC Barcelona signed both Thiago and Kimmich to complement Robert Lewandowski.


Furthermore, despite the fact that the rumor that Kimmich was “offered” to Barca last summer appears preposterous, it is only more evidence that Kimmich’s status — and contentment — under Thomas Tuchel may be in doubt.


There is disagreement between Kimmich and Tuchel on the team’s future No. 6 player, and tensions may arise during the January transfer window when the Bavarians are anticipated to sign a new midfielder to fill the position.


Kimmich and Pep Guardiola are rumored to be working together once again at Manchester City.
