Barcelona target Kimmich speaks out on Bayern Munich future

Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmich has this evening provided a brief insight into his future.

As much, of course, comes as speculation pointing towards a potential summer exit from the Allianz Arena for Kimmich continues to circulate online.

Amid what has proven a hugely frustrating campaign, from an individual and collective standpoint, for the German international in Bavaria, it is understood that Kimmich is giving serious consideration to seeking out a new adventure in the summer.

The impending exit of Thomas Tuchel – with whom the 29-year-old is known to have a strained relationship – could well work in Bayern’s favour when it comes to convincing Kimmich to stay put.

But a number of clubs from across the continent, first and foremost La Liga giants Barcelona, are known to be keeping a close eye on the situation, with a view to a summer bid.

Speaking to the media late on Monday, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his plans for next season was put to Kimmich himself.

And the versatile midfielder, in quotes provided to Bild and gathered by Mundo Deportivo, left all options on the table, in explaining:

“No one has spoken to me yet… Let’s see what happens.”

Kimmich went on to add:

“For me the most important thing is to perform well. I can’t influence the rest.”
