Liverpool, Manchester United rival Barcelona in Joshua Kimmich pursuit

Liverpool and Manchester United are ready to rival Barcelona if the chance to sign Joshua Kimmich emerges next summer.

According to Fichajes, Barcelona’s pursuit of Joshua Kimmich could come under threat as Liverpool and Manchester United could join the chase for the German star. Some of these clubs are sensing a potential opening next summer when the €60 million-rated midfielder enters the final year of his Bayern Munich deal, which could make up for an exciting chase.

Joshua Kimmich: One of the Best in the World

There are hardly any clubs that would refuse the opportunity to sign Joshua Kimmich if an opportunity presented itself. Some of the top clubs around the continent are sensing just that as the 28-year-old enters the final year of his deal next summer.

Bayern Munich are not even close to entertaining any proposals in January for their midfield mainstay. They will work towards extending his deal beyond 2025. However, Kimmich might take the opportunity to see what other clubs have to offer, with a host of sides, including Manchester City, who have shown an interest.

Barcelona have also considered Joshua Kimmich as a top target for next summer as they are looking to build their side steadily. Kimmich is a senior option for them and will cost a lot of money for their liking. Some reports have already indicated the Catalans cannot sign the 28-year-old. But Barcelona have surprised many in the past and may do so again.

The report states Kimmich could cost around €60 million, which in itself is bad news for the Catalans, who are struggling financially in the current climate. Moreover, Premier League sides like Liverpool and Manchester United are eager to compete for the 28-year-old, which complicates matters for the Spanish giants.

Premier League Calling for Joshua Kimmich?

Liverpool are keen on Kimmich as Jurgen Klopp eyes a big midfield signing in January or next summer. He wants to complete his midfield revamp, which he began in the summer, and the 28-year-old will surely come in as a finished article.

If Liverpool manage to land him, then they will indeed become a formidable force in England and Europe. Similarly, Manchester United are eyeing up a senior midfielder in their side with the right experience and winning mentality.

Kimmich, for his part, could become a tempting option. But considering the current quality of clubs interested in him, there are chances Manchester United will have to dig deep. All eyes will be on the €60 million-rated Barcelona midfield target and whether he signs a new deal at Bayern. If he fails to, then a transfer battle could ensue for the 28-year-old next summer.
