Heading into next season, FC Barcelona know they have to be ready to face the best competition next season. During the last campaign, the Catalan club fell short in reaching their objectives. In this upcoming season, however, Barcelona will do whatever it takes to make sure that does not happen again.

However, the club will need to sort out their signings first. Yet, given their financial situation, not every ideal signing is feasible for Barcelona at the moment. That is why the latest revelation connected to Bayern Munich’s versatile star will likely come as great news.

As highlighted by SPORT, Barcelona target Joshua Kimmich may finally have a price tag placed on him by Bayern Munich. Up until a few days ago, the Bavarian club was not too sure about whether or not to let Kimmich go just yet or wait to see if his contract could be extended or not.

However, now it seems that Bayern already have a price tag for Kimmich to go. At the moment, any top club that is able to bring up an offer worth €30-40 million will be eligible to take the German star away from the Bavarian giants. While this price may have been higher before, Bayern now understand what their situation is.

Barcelona may see this as great news, but the problem is that Barça are still economically vulnerable. That is why the possibility of Kimmich staying another season at Bayern and then leaving for free potentially suits them better as well.

As per SPORT, that option is still valid as well. The German player would be willing to play at Bayern Munich for one more season so that he can leave for free at the end of the campaign in 2025 and possibly even get a premium on his signing.

However, Barcelona cannot count on that reality being a simple one either. Other top sides like Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, and even Liverpool are also quite interested in taking a hold of Kimmich’s services. That is why Barcelona will need to bet on Kimmich’s dedication to playing for Barça pulling through.
