While receiving a two-match suspension in the Bundesliga, Joshua Kimmich had an excellent performance in Bayern Munich’s 2-1 victory over Galatasaray in the Champions League last Wednesday. The German midfielder passed the ball with 93% accuracy with 3 successful tackles and 2 interceptions. In addition, Kimmich also excellently fulfilled his role as an attack support with an assist that helped Harry Kane open the score in the match.
After the match, Bayern’s sporting director Christoph Freund shared with T-online journalist Julian Buhl about the 28-year-old midfielder’s contract status: “Nothing new yet but Kimmich is still very important to us. Of course I spoke with Kimmich for a very long time, he knows his role at Bayern and so do we.”
Currently, Kimmich has a contract until 2025, so many top European clubs are paying attention to the German midfielder, including Barcelona, Man City and Arsenal.
Previously, there were many rumors about coach Thomas Tuchel looking for a new defensive midfielder right in the January transfer window, possibly to supplement the position of the German midfielder but that could cause problems. Kimmich seriously considered his other options going forward.
