Robert Lewandowski believes Bayern Munich need two or three more signings this summer.
"The fact is I don't want to leave Bayern Munich", Kimmich told Sport Bild.
"It's not only conceivable, but it's my goal to stay at Bayern for a long time - under the assumption that I play".
Kimmich has made 39 appearances in all competitions this term but only 20 of those have come in the starting line-up. It was claimed Kimmich doesn't see his future at Bayern Munich, doesn't feel the confidence of Carlo Ancelotti, and is looking to say goodbye.
Guardiola seeing the potential deal positively would be no surprise, but it would be a surprise if the manager was prepared for a very public, and potentially very nasty, battle with his former club for the player. I want to be a regular member of the side.
"The coach knows I can play as a number six and at right back, also in the centre of defence". Manchester United and Atletico Madrid are also said to be circling.
"This is a monstrous fallacy", club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said in a statement.
"The report is simply false". "There is no truth in this story".
Kimmich insisted that he plans to become a key player for Bayern Munich going forward. I can imagine (vorstellen) that that is not the end of the story. "Everyone has declared he will be Philipp Lahm's successor next season".
However, Rangnick says the Germany worldwide is out of their price range.
