Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly considering Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich as a potential replacement for Ilkay Gundogan, should the City skipper leave this summer. Guardiola, who signed Kimmich during his time at Bayern, has been alerted to the fact that the German international was angered by Julian Nagelsmann’s sacking in March and is said to be seeking a fresh challenge. Kimmich’s ability to play across the back four and in midfield has put him on Guardiola’s radar, with Barcelona also reportedly interested in the player. Bayern are trying to raise cash to strengthen their ranks, including selling former Liverpool striker Sadio Mane. They have told City they cannot afford the £60 million asking price to turn Joao Cancelo’s loan into a permanent move, but the potential of using Kimmich as part of any transfer has increased the chances of sealing a deal.
