The German international has emerged as one of the best young defenders in Europe
Wednesday, November 22, 2017
The agent of Manchester City target Joshua Kimmich has confirmed his client is currently locked in contract talks with Bayern Munich.
Having joined Bayern from Stuttgart in 2015, the 22-year-old was given his chance at the Allianz Arena by current City boss Pep Guardiola.
The German international has since emerged as one of the best young defenders in Europe, with the possibility of a big-money switch to the Premier League in the offing.
Guardiola remains a big fan of the player and it has been claimed that he is exploring the possibility on bringing him to England in the near future.
However, Bayern are keen to make sure Kimmich remains part of their long-term plans and the player’s agent, Uli Ferber, confirmed that his client is currently engaged in contract talks at the Allianz Arena.
Ferber told Sport Bild: “In the summer [Bayern Munich CEO] Karl-Heinz Rummenigge came to us for the first time to discuss whether we can extend our association.
“We sat down together for the first time in the fall and will again one more time by the end of the year to lead the discussions.
“There is much to support an agreement given Kimmich’s star has continued to rise.”
Kimmich’s current deal with Bayern expires in 2020.
