Xavi Hernandez believes Bayern München star Joshua Kimmich would be the perfect player for FC Barcelona.

FC Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez has sung the praises of Bayern München's Joshua Kimmich whom he considers 'the perfect player for FC Barcelona'.

Xavi and Kimmich took part in a double interview in Sport Bild in which the former Barcelona player looked back on a phone call he had with Pep Guardiola while the Catalan coach was at Bayern München.

"I talked to Pep Guardiola, my ex-coach at Barcelona. He said: 'I have a player in my team who can play in any position - really!" I asked him: 'Who is the boy?', and he told me something about a man named 'Kimmich' that I had honestly never heard anything about before," Xavi told Sport Bild and added:

"Since the day I talked to Pep, I've been following your career. After all, Pep doesn't say stuff like that for no reason."

"When I saw you playing, I knew right away that you could become a great player. And you are today! Joshua is the present and future of FC Bayern and the German national team. And you can really play in any position. With your playing style, you would be the perfect player for FC Barcelona," Xavi said.
