According to Marca, kimmich is willing to join Barcelona, and the Rossoneri appreciate the German midfielder very much, but the deal will be very complicated.
After busquets announced that he would leave the team this summer, Barcelona urgently needed to find a No.6 player. Zubimendi, Amrabat and Ruben neves were all players who had an affair with Barcelona, and kimmich became the latest one. For Barcelona, kimmich is an expensive player. No matter in Bayern or the German national team, kimmich is an out-and-out main force. In addition, his contract with Bayern expires in two years. Under such circumstances, it is very difficult for Barcelona to get kimmich, and Bayern will not be willing to let him go. Moreover, even if the Bundesliga giants are willing to release him, his worth will not be less than 60 million euros.
Barcelona cannot pay such a high transfer fee. Even if kimmich’s transfer fee is amortized during the contract period, the annual cost will far exceed 20 million euros. In addition, Arsenal and Liverpool are also interested in kimmich, which is another obstacle for Barcelona.
