Manchester United and Liverpool to Compete for Bayern Munich Star Joshua Kimmich

Manchester United and Liverpool are gearing up for a summer battle over the signing of Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich, as his contract with the Bundesliga champions enters its final 18 months. The 28-year-old's deal with Bayern is set to expire in the summer of 2025, attracting interest from clubs across Europe.

Kimmich, a versatile player capable of various positions, is yet to extend his contract, leading to speculation about a potential departure from Thomas Tuchel's side at the end of the season. This creates an opportunity for Bayern to secure a fee for the German midfielder.

Spanish outlet AS reports that Manchester United and Liverpool are leading the race for Kimmich, who currently earns over £300,000 per week. The report emphasizes changes in Munich's leadership since Kimmich's last contract extension in 2021, with then-CEO Oliver Kahn and director Hasan Salihamidzic no longer in charge.

Despite the managerial shake-up, Kimmich remains a crucial part of the Bayern team, featuring in 11 league appearances this season. Tuchel has predominantly utilized the Champions League winner in the defensive midfield role, but Kimmich's versatility allows him to play higher up, at right-back, and even in central defense.

At Old Trafford, Manchester United is undergoing a squad overhaul after Sir Jim Ratcliffe's £1.3 billion investment. The club has decided against extending Raphael Varane's contract, freeing him to discuss a summer transfer with foreign clubs. United is also looking to reduce the wages of high-earning players to comply with Premier League Profit and Sustainability Rules, focusing on potential loans in the January window.

Meanwhile, Liverpool has found defensive midfield cover in £16 million signing Wataru Endo, impressing since his move from Stuttgart. Trent Alexander-Arnold's transition toward the center of the park further strengthens Liverpool's options.
