Man United have open talks with Bayern Munich ahead of summer move
Manchester United have open talks with Bayern Munich about the possibility of signing Joshua Kimmich this summer, according to reports.
German newspaper Kicker, as reported by the Sun, are claiming that the Red Devils are keen to bring the talented Germany international to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
The reports also state that Manchester United have begun talks with the German champions over a possible deal to bring the 22-year-old to the Premier League.
However, Manchester United are also believed to be interested in signing Kimmich this summer, say the reports.
It is also claimed that Jose Mourinho’s top transfer priority this summer is to bring in a midfielder who can help bring out the best from world-record signing Paul Pogba at Old Trafford – and that Kimmich fits the bill.
Defensive midfielder Kimmich has scored four goals and made one assist in 19 Bundesliga games for Bayern Munich so far this season.
Manchester United, who are currently fifth in the table, were one of the Premier League’s biggest spending clubs last year as they brought in Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic following Mourinho’s appointment.
