Man City ‘could sign’ one of the world’s best in January

Manchester City

Joshua Kimmich, a star player for Bayern Munich, is reportedly being considered by Manchester City for a January transfer. Though he is one of the best midfielders in the world of football. The midfielder has not played much at the Allianz Arena this season, raising questions about his future with the team.

With 10 victories from their first 17 games, City has had a somewhat sluggish start to the season and is currently in fifth place in the Premier League. In addition to a planned influx of new talent in January at the Etihad Stadium. And the return of Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne will support City’s title push.

In order to strengthen their midfield, City “may step up” their interest in Bayern star Kimmich, according to talkSPORT. The current Premier League champions have long admired the German international, who previously collaborated with Guardiola.

In all competitions this season, Kimmich has not been a key member of Bayern’s squad despite his high regard throughout Europe. It happens amidst rumors that he and manager Thomas Tuchel are no longer on good terms.

Kimmich has battled illnesses and injuries recently. But there’s a growing sense that Kimmich is gradually being replaced at Bayern as other players are being considered. As a result, City might strike, though it’s not clear if the German team would help with a January transfer.

Guardiola’s side are looking to find a successor for Kalvin Phillips, who will be sold next month after an underwhelming few seasons at the club.

Juventus and Newcastle are two teams that have expressed interest in the former Leeds United playmaker; however, it has also been reported that Bayern are considering the 28-year-old. Considering how much City loves Kimmich, a surprise trade could be seen. It will be a rare chance for both teams to address their issues without having to worry about losing their star player to injury and not being able to find a replacement in time for the second half of the season.
