  • Robert Lewandowski has lifted the lid on linking up with Joshua Kimmich at Barcelona
  • The Bayern Munich ace has been touted as a replacement for Sergio Busquets by the Barcelona hierarchy
  • Though Bayern have no intentions of letting go of their star midfielder

Robert Lewandowski has finally opened up on Bayern Munich ace Joshua Kimmich's potential move to FC Barcelona this summer.

The Polish goal wizard has taken La Liga like a duck to water in his debut season after swapping Bayern for Barcelona as the Catalan giants seek to pull off a similar coup with his former teammate Kimmich.

According to Barca Universal, La Blaugrana are exploring the possibility of signing the German international as a potential replacement for the outgoing Sergio Busquets.

Securing the services of Kimmich might prove to be quite tricky, with the 28-year-old having two years remaining on his current contract with Bayern.

Speaking on the possibility of linking up with his ex-Bayern teammate at Camp Nou, Lewandowski, who became the first Barca player to reach the 30+ goal barrier in his first season since iconic Brazilian forward Ronaldo Nazario, said:

“No. I haven't spoken with Kimmich recently, and I know where you're going with this," he told Canal+ as quoted by Tribuna.
“I'll tell you I heard about these rumours myself, but I didn't speak with him since it isn’t the time. Of course, of course, I should put [Kimmich in the team], but I don't want to say anything because I don't really know the subject, and I don't know if it's some kind of journalistic gossip because such things appear a lot.”

Kimmich appears on Barcelona's radar

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Barcelona are looking to make reinforcements to their first team squad, which sealed its maiden La Liga title in four years with a 4-2 away win at bitter rivals Espanyol.

During the week, captain Sergio Busquets announced that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season after almost 15 years in the starting lineup. This leaves a gaping hole in the midfield and, in particular, the Spaniard's deeper, more defensive position of pivot.
