Manchester City midfielder wary of ‘quality’ of Real Madrid talisman ahead of UCL draw


The next summer transfer window has the potential to be one for the ages with several the best players expected on the ring to a different high-level team.

At the heart of it will be Real Madrid, who are first and foremost considering a move for Kylian Mbappe. The Frenchman’s contract expires this summer and he has already informed PSG of his desire to leave.

Elsewhere, they are also hoping to strengthen the left-back position and are pursues move for Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies.

Unlike Mbappé, he still has one year of contract, but does not wish to renew it under the Bavarians’ conditions and hopes to earn almost 10 million euros per year with his next contract.

In the midst of all this, Florian Plettenberg reported that another Bayern Munich star, Joshua Kimmich, was open to a transfer this summer, with Bayern also willing to sell him for a suitable deal.

However, he is only considering five clubs for his future, including Real Madrid, of course.

Kimmich’s current situation

Thomas Tuchel is clearly not a big fan of Kimmich and has often kept him out of the team or played him as a right-back in recent times.

The German coach believes that the midfielder, as brilliant as he is, is not a natural. 6, which seems to have frustrated him.

And even though Tuchel won’t be Bayern’s coach next season, Kimmich probably appears to be done with his tenure in Germany.

As such, he is set to join another big club soon, and his options include: Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Does Madrid need him?

Madrid currently boasts one of the best young midfielders in world football with Federico Valverde, Aurélien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga and of course, Jude Bellingham.

Three of those five will likely be in contention for a starting spot next season, with Toni Kroos and Dani Ceballos expected to serve as backups, with Nico Paz also likely in the mix.

And Luka Modric is unlikely to end up renewing his contract, which in reality will mean no place for Kimmich.

He will also end up costing a sum of around €40-50 million, over the final year of his contract, which could be used to strengthen other areas of the team, such as central defense or the full-back role right.
