Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer has hit out at Barcelona for flirting with Joshua Kimmich and made it clear the club have no plans to sell.
Hainer isn’t at all happy with the Catalans’ behavior and has hit out at the speculation.
“First of all, Xavi was an excellent player and I have big respect for Barcelona,” he said.
“But I don’t understand why they’re openly and offensively ‘flirting’ with our player. Joshua Kimmich is an absolute cornerstone for us.
“Joshua is a leader, has won many titles with us and will also continue to win titles with us in the future. He’s firmly in our plans for the future and one of the players to build the team around.”
