Manchester City weigh up move for Bayern Munich starlet Kimmich

Kimmich produced some excellent performances for Germany during Euro 2016 to enhance his reputation

Manchester City are considering testing Bayern Munich for Germany wonderkid Joshua Kimmich.
Pep Guardiola likes the 21-year-old defensive midfielder, who he helped convert into a full-back, and £20m would likely be their starting point for a bid, though Munich rate him highly.
It was Guardiola who signed Kimmich during his time as Bayern boss in January 2015 for almost £6m from RB Leipzig.


Kimmich appeared at his first major international tournament for Germany at Euro 2016 this summer.
He excelled at right-back, not his natural position – so much so that he was named in UEFA’s official Team of the Tournament.


Sportsmail has been told Guardiola sees him as a natural heir to 31-year-old Pablo Zabaleta and the City manager could be prepared to make a move for the starlet before his stock rises.
Kimmich has five caps for Germany already and has made 23 appearances in the Bundesliga for Bayern.
