According to The Sun, Kimmich's contract with the Bundesliga leader ends in 2020, and he seems quite determined to complete the agreement.

His agent, Uli Ferber has confirmed that the player is currently engaged in contract talks at the Allianz Arena. He told Sports Bild,

In the summer Karl-Heinz Rummenigge came to us for the first time to discuss whether we can extend our association.

He added,

We sat down together for the first time in the fall and will again one more time by the end of the year to lead the discussions. There is much to support an agreement given Kimmich's star has continued to rise.

Manchester City currently stands at the first in the EPL table with 34 points while the arch-rival United following City with 26 points. This season City has been doing well in the Champions League as well where it has advanced to the last 16.
