The 21-year-old was one of the breakthrough stars of the Spaniard’s last season at the Allianz Arena, with the ex-Barcelona tactician handing him regular game time as he converted him from a defensive midfielder to a promising right-back.
Guardiola was in charge of the club when they signed Kimmich for just £6m from RB Leipzig in January 2015, and reports claim that only 18 months on from that he’s eyeing a £20m move for the versatile ace.
The Bayern man recently shone on the right hand side of Germany’s backline at EURO 2016, with his performances earning him a slot in the official Team of the Tournament.
Right-back is seemingly a problem area for Guardiola at Man City, with Bacary Sagna now 33 and Pablo Zabaleta likely to leave the club.
Kimmich could be a decent option for him, with the starlet able to fill the position while also being able to move into midfield when needed.
