The leaders of Manchester City are ready to engage in talks with Bayern Munich, to realize an exchange between the two giant clubs. The English are looking for the services of Joshua Kimmich and for his card they are ready to finally give up Joao Cancelo, who is currently playing on loan at the German club.
Pep Guardiola is a big admirer of Kimmich and also sees him as the perfect replacement for Ilkay Gundogan in midfield, who is out of contract at the end of the season. Turk has been offered a 1-year renewal by City, but Barcelona also want his services and the Spaniards are ready to offer Gundogan a 3-year contract. Cancelo, on the other hand, joined Bayern on loan, but the Germans are not willing to pay 60 million pounds, which is the figure to finally buy the player's card.
Guardiola, on the other hand, is willing to finally give up on Cancelo, as the player caused problems in the dressing room at City with his teammates, due to not being activated by Guardiola. Kimmich is a perfect alternative for the Spanish coach who worked for 3 years with the player when he was in charge of Bayern Munich.
One of the German's best skills is his flexibility on the pitch. Kimmich has been activated as a defender, but he can also play quite well in midfield. This makes him the perfect player for Pep Guardiola's playing style, who prefers his defenders to get forward and become an active part of the offensive action.
Kimmich has two years of active contract with Bayern, but he can leave Germany earlier. The player is said to be looking for a new challenge, and somewhat disillusioned with the Bavarians following the sacking of manager Julian Nageslmann.
