In a recent print edition, Mundo Deportivo revealed that Real Madrid are facing tough competition for Bayern Munich ace Joshua Kimmich. It has been stated that Los Blancos will have to rival Barcelona and Manchester City in the race to land the German midfield ace.
Kimmich’s Impressive Form In Bundesliga
Kimmich is having a decent campaign at the German club after putting in a series of impressive displays for them at the centre of the park. The German international has picked up five assists in 15 matches for Bayern this season on all fronts.
The former Stuttgart talent has been a consistent performer in both halves based on his average of 1.9 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 1.2 shots and 2.7 key passes per 90 minutes in the Bundesliga. He has even been accurate when distributing possession from midfield based on his pass success rate of 90.8% in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).
His current deal at the German club will expire in the summer of 2025. Hence, Los Blancos could potentially land him on a cut-price deal at the end of this campaign.
Will Kimmich Be A Good Option For Real Madrid?
Kimmich is a tough-tackling midfielder who usually clears the danger when the opposition are on the front foot. He can shoot the ball with venom from long range and has got the vision to engineer a few promising chances in the final third.
We can expect Kimmich to bring more quality and depth to Real Madrid’s midfield. He is good enough to earn a regular starting spot at the Madrid club in the coming years. The German talent has got the experience to help Los Blancos challenge for some major honours over the next few years.
At 28, Kimmich is enjoying the peak stage of his playing career at the moment. Hence, he is well-equipped to make an instant impact at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium if the Madrid giants can get a deal done for him next summer.
However, it remains to be seen whether Kimmich can make a smooth transition to life in Spanish football. Still, the pros outweigh the cons of recruiting a player of his quality, so Los Blancos should focus on bringing him on board at the end of this campaign.
