What is the most recent Manchester United transfer rumor?

Despite the current takeover crisis at Old Trafford, the Red Devils and Erik ten Hag have managed to bolster the first-team squad this summer.

Mason Mount was the first player to join Chelsea in a £60 million deal, and he has been joined by Andre Onana, who moved from Inter Milan for £47 million.

More could be on the way, however, with a new striker on United’s radar, Rasmus Hojlund. Along with a forward, the Red Devils appear to be interested in another midfielder, with Fiorentina’s Sofyan Amrabat prominently linked with a move to Manchester.

However, an update suggests that the club is also interested in Kimmich. In the previous 48 hours, the Faithful MUFC relayed news from Spain regarding Kimmich.

The £300,000-per-week player is poised to leave the German giants this summer, with Manchester United, Liverpool, and Manchester City all expected to make offers in the coming days.

According to the source, United wants to strengthen its midfield with a defensive player, and Kimmich fits the bill perfectly owing to his ability to recover balls, his game vision, and his ability to initiate plays from the back.

Who exactly is Joshua Kimmich?

Kimmich joined Bayern Munich from VfB Stuttgart in 2015 and has since become a club icon, making 347 professional games, scoring 40 goals, and assisting 94 times.

The 28-year-old has won 20 awards with Bayern Munich, including the Champions League in 2020, and has played in a variety of positions throughout his career, which was noticed by former United manager Jose Mourinho, who had praised the German for his adaptability.

“I see him as a top right-back, left-back, center-back, No.6, No.8, No.10… he can be anything!”

“I think he looks to me, very intelligent in terms of football, very intelligent, understands the moments of games and the difference between positions, and understands what he has to do here and what he has to do there.”

“I think he’s a phenomenal, an absolutely phenomenal player.”

Meanwhile, commentator Alan Hutton praised Kimmich as an “outstanding football player,” and if he joins United, Ten Hag will have options at right back, defensive midfield, and central midfield.

He has played at the top level for both club and country, and Kimmich has pleased FBref during the previous 12 months. He is in the top 1% of midfielders in terms of passes attempted, progressive passes, and critical passes, demonstrating his ability to control the midfield alongside Mount, Casemiro, and Bruno Fernandes.

It’s one to keep an eye on in the coming days, but it appears that United will need to beat two of their fiercest rivals to a deal for Kimmich.
