Spanish press reports over the past few days have confirmed that Joshua Kimmich is close to moving to Barcelona to replace Sergo Busquets at the heart of the Catalan side, with some others linking the player to a move to Real Madrid to replace his compatriot Toni Kroos.
Busquets left the ranks of the Catalan team after many years with the team, and his departure came as a result of lowering the salary cap of players in order for the administration of the blue garnets to ease the process of registering the players it wants to include in the upcoming summer transition period.
Busquets’ replacement shocks Barcelona
Journalist Florian Plattenberg told Sky that he has confirmed that Joshua Kimmich does not want to leave Bayern Munich and there is no connection between the player and Barcelona management.
Blaugrana, who won the La Liga title, are looking for a midfielder to replace Busquets, the team’s captain, and there are many strong candidates on the table of the Catalan club who will support the team in the upcoming summer transfer period.
It is noteworthy that Bayern Munich lost three goals to Leipzig yesterday in the German Premier League matches to reduce his hopes of obtaining a league title, and Kimmich, after the end of the match, wept in light of the unsuccessful season that the Bayern team was going through.
