Barcelona learn Joshua Kimmich asking price

An insight into the kind of fee expected to be demanded by Bayern Munich for star midfielder Joshua Kimmich this summer has this weekend been provided.

As much, of course, comes amid long-standing links between Kimmich, and La Liga giants Barcelona.

Amid their ongoing search for reinforcements at the base of boss Xavi’s midfield, the Blaugrana brass have earmarked the German international as the ideal addition.

Kimmich is a long-term favourite of Barca’s headmaster, who has made clear to those behind the scenes in Catalunya’s capital that the signing of a legitimate Sergio Busquets successor is of the utmost importance this summer.

With the financial issues at the Camp Nou common knowledge across the football landscape, though, just how much would Joan Laporta and co. be forced to pay out to get their man?

As much has today been covered by Mundo Deportivo, who point towards an altogether reasonable sum.

Kimmich’s contract at the Allianz Arena is currently due to come to an end in the summer of 2025.

And, if the Bayern hierarchy cannot convince him to pen fresh terms over the coming weeks and months, a sale is expected to be sanctioned, for a fee in the region of €35 million.
