Barcelona linked with ‘impossible’ Sancho and Kimmich moves

Barcelona are eyeing January moves for Manchester United outcast Jadon Sancho and Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich, according to SPORT.

Sancho has been exiled from the United first-team squad after refusing to apologise to manager Erik ten Hag following a social media post that undermined the Dutchman.

After Ten Hag dropped the English international for their Arsenal clash and blamed it on his subpar training sessions, Sancho claimed he was being scapegoated.

Ten Hag demanded an apology, but Sancho refused. The club has since asked him to stay away from the first team and train alone.

Barcelona are reportedly eyeing a loan approach for the United winger in January, but it is difficult to see this deal going through.

Barcelona’s financial woes are well-documented. The Catalans are already facing problems ahead of the winter window, as the new La Liga salary cap means they cannot register incoming Vitor Roque.

Barca signed the Brazilian phenom to join them in January, but they may not even be able to register him until next summer. The prospect of Sancho’s salary on their books looks impossible right now.

As for Kimmich, the German midfielder feels less valued under Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel. 

Despite being a mainstay in the Bayern first-team picture for years, Tuchel doesn’t trust Kimmich.

Tuchel hooked him early in the second half in their clash with Bayer Leverkusen yesterday, and the tension between the pair was palpable.

Barcelona were linked with a move for Kimmich this summer, but even if the Bayern maestro were to leave, it is impossible to see them pulling off the deal.

Their finances saw them only sign low-cost and free players this summer. Their only big-money signing was Roque.

It is impossible to see Barca stumping the massive sum Bayern will demand for Kimmich. 

While Barcelona’s interest in both Sancho and Kimmich may be genuine, their current financial situation and the substantial demands of these transfers present significant obstacles.
