Joshua Kimmich has already hinted who he would pick out of Liverpool and Man City with both clubs interested


Joshua Kimmich has already hinted at his preferred destination amid reports linking him with Manchester City and Liverpool.

The German star has been one of Bayern Munich's best players since he broke into the first team as a 20-year-old in 2015 following his move from RB Leipzig.

Since then Kimmich has made 370 appearances in all competitions for the German giants, scoring 41 goals and providing 100 assists. He has won eight Bundesliga titles, along with three German cups and one Champions League.

However, despite being one of the first names on Thomas Tuchel's teamsheet, the 28-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena.


Kimmich has reportedly struggled to click with Tuchel since he replaced Julian Nagelsmann as manager last March.

With his contract set to expire in 2025, both Manchester City and Liverpool are reportedly fighting to persuade the midfielder to move to the Premier League.

If Kimmich decides to leave Bayern, then City could be in pole position to sign him. When Pep Guardiola was linked with a return to Bayern Munich at the end of the 2019/20 season, Kimmich admitted that he would love to work with the Spaniard again.

"I know [Guardiola] and have a lot to thank him for. He took me from the second division and let me play in the Bundesliga," Kimmich said.

"We won the double together and after that season I became a player for Germany. So, of course, I won’t be against him coming back."

It's no surprise that Kimmich wants to work with Guardiola again. It was the Spaniard who saw Kimmich's potential to play as an inverted full-back, and since then he has developed into one of the best full-backs and midfielders in the world.

With some figures at City believing that Guardiola could extend his stay at City beyond the expiration of his current deal in 2025, Kimmich might have to join the treble winners if he wants to reunite with his favourite coach.
