Manchester City preparing £100m double move for pair of Barcelona targets – report

Barcelona are still determining their targets for the summer transfer window, which opens in Spain at midnight. They’ve been linked with many players – some with more intensity than others. Two of those that fall into this category are Joshua Kimmich and Dani Olmo, of Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig respectively.

Kimmich is well-liked by Hansi Flick, who managed him during his successful spell in charge of Bayern Munich. Meanwhile, Olmo is greatly appreciated by sporting director Deco, and he is an option to reinforce Barcelona’s options on the left wing.

As it turns out, Barcelona may not get the chance to sign either player, as reports in England (via Sport) say that Manchester City are eyeing up moves for Kimmich and Olmo. The combined operations would be worth £100m, which would leave the Catalans with very little chance of competing.

At this stage, it does not appear that Kimmich or Olmo are top targets for Barcelona, with Nico Williams, Luis Diaz and Amadou Onana/Mikel Merino looking better placed. Ultimately, the club’s financial situation will determine the business they can do over the coming weeks.
