PSG, Liverpool Suffer Transfer Setback as Bayern Munich Star Reconsiders Exit

Paris Saint-Germain aims to strengthen its midfield this summer in preparation for a potential future without Kylian Mbappé. One name rumored to enhance the position is Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich.

In the January transfer window, Kimmich emerged as a potential target. However, if the Parisians see the veteran as vital for their midfield, they’ve recently taken a transfer blow.

Le Parisien’s Laurent Perrin notes that former PSG manager Thomas Tuchel is opting to leave after this season, and the 29-year-old is re-evaluating his future. Kimmich’s contract expires in 2025, and reports surfaced that he was ready to exit. 

“Kimmich is one of the priority targets,” Perrin confided (h/t Le10Sport). “As we wrote, he is very interested in the project. But he is also very attached to Bayern. And now that he knows that Tuchel is going to pack his bags at the end of the season (he hates him), that may encourage him to stay.”

Whether the Bayern Munich star stays or not, the Parisians must contend with intense competition. Recently, journalist Ben Jacobs provided an update on the file and noted that Liverpool and Manchester City appear to have an edge over PSG.

If Kimmich remains with the Bundesliga side, PSG must cross him off their list of targets.
