New Straits Times - - Sport -

MU­NICH: Bay­ern Mu­nich are tak­ing le­gal ac­tion against a Stuttgart news­pa­per for re­port­ing that mid­fielder Joshua Kim­mich is to leave the club at the end of the sea­son.

Bay­ern said on their web­site that they are tak­ing the ac­tion against the Stuttgarter Zeitung news­pa­per for what chair­man Karl-Heinz Rum­menigge called “a mon­strous fal­lacy.”

Rum­menigge said: “This story lacks any foun­da­tion. Joshua Kim­mich has a con­tract with Bay­ern un­til 2020 and will def­i­nitely play for Bay­ern next sea­son.”

Kim­mich, a 22-year-old ver­sa­tile mid­fielder who has made 13 ap­pear­ances for Ger­many, is re­port­edly un­happy he did not fea­ture as much this sea­son un­der coach Carlo Ancelotti as he did un­der pre­de­ces­sor Pep Guardi­ola.

Kicker mag­a­zine re­ported that Span­ish sides Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, as well as Manch­ester clubs United and City, are in­ter­ested. AP
