Barcelona rule out summer move for Joshua Kimmich

Barcelona will not launch the offensive to sign 29-year-old Bayern Munich utility man Joshua Kimmich in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Jose Alvarez on El Chiringuito TV, Joshua Kimmich will not join Barcelona in the summer transfer window. The Bayern Munich utility man has been the subject of interest from the Blaugrana for a long time. However, the Catalan giants have ruled out a move to sign the 29-year-old from the Bundesliga club in the summer transfer window.

The rise and rise of Joshua Kimmich

Joshua Kimmich has been a top-class performer for Bayern Munich since arriving from VfB Stuttgart in July 2015. A native of Rottweil, the German international has been a utility man throughout his professional career thus far due to his ability to reprise role in the backline and the midfield unit.

The 29-year-old reprised the right-back and holding midfield roles in the 2023/24 season. While Bayern Munich failed to win a trophy this past campaign and meekly relinquished the Bundesliga title, Kimmich played his part in his 43 outings, chipping in with two goals and ten assists.

However, Kimmich’s dissatisfaction with Thomas Tuchel’s methods compelled him to consider leaving Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window. Such a situation did not go unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs. He has also been a target for Barcelona.

Summer move beckons?

Barcelona’s interest in Joshua Kimmich is understandable. The Catalan giants are scouring the market for a midfielder heading into the summer after failing to fill the void left by the departure of Sergio Busquets last year. Oriol Romeu was a sub-par signing and will likely leave Barcelona in the coming weeks.

So, Kimmich emerged as a viable target for Barcelona. However, the Blaugrana will not launch the offensive to sign the 29-year-old utility man from Bundesliga club Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window. The Catalan giants have also ruled out a move for Bernardo Silva.

With Kimmich and Silva no longer on Barcelona’s agenda for the summer transfer window, it will be interesting to see who becomes the top midfield target for the club. However, the German international will likely remain at Bayern Munich heading into the 2024/25 season.
