Has a Bayern Munich stalwart got his heart set on a move to Manchester City?

It could be a busy summer for Manchester City as they make moves to improve their squad. The summer transfer window is only a few months away from opening, and it shapes to be a busy one at the world champions. Joshua Kimmich is one player again linked with a summer move to the world champions. But does the Bayern Munich stalwart have his heart set on a move to the Etihad? A recent report indicates that the midfielder may be keen to move to Manchester City this summer.

Respected journalist Dean Jones has told givemesport.com that Kimmich may have had a move to Manchester City on his mind for some time now. Furthermore, Jones also believes that if Kimmich has a choice between Liverpool and Manchester City, he would choose the signing for the world champions. Jones said: “If it was to come down to a straight pick for Kimmich between Liverpool and Manchester City, he would be expected to go to the Etihad Stadium, in my opinion. With Liverpool, you don’t really know how he would fit in yet because they are about to change manager. It is not totally clear which position he would be expected to play.”

Joshua Kimmich could immediately slot into a role at Manchester City

Following yesterday’s nil-all draw with Arsenal, it does seem apparent that Manchester City needs someone to support Rodri. The Spanish international carries a heavy workload for Pep Guardiola’s side. Quality support for Rodri like Kimmich could potentially provide could allow City’s midfield general to get more rest during the season.

The midfield pairing of Kimmich and Rodri could also be a game changer for Manchester City. Kimmich and Rodri’s games do appear suited to playing together. Both players are capable of drifting forward from deep in midfield. The duo also possesses the ability to pick out a defence splitting pass. This attribute, coupled with Rodri’s eye for goal, may also help City unlock packed defences like the one they encountered yesterday.

The treble winners are in the market for a defensive midfielder this summer. Given the latest comments from Dean Jones, the ideal man for the job may already have his heart set on a move to the Etihad.
