Kingsley Coman keen on joining Manchester United

According to a report from The Athletic (h/t Express), Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman is keen on joining Manchester United, amid interest from the Red Devils.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is keen on bringing in a new right-sided winger this summer. Jadon Sancho remains the club’s top target, but it would be be dangerous put all targets in a single basket.

Enter Coman as a potential alternative for the Englishman. Reports on Friday claimed that the 20-time English champions had made an approach to sign the Frenchman.

And now, as per the aforementioned report, Coman, too, is keen on making the switch to Manchester United in the summer. (h/t Express)

The 24-year-old Coman has been with Bayern Munich since 2015, spending the first two years at the club on loan, before making the transfer permanent in 2017.

Injuries have hampered his development somewhat, but the Frenchman remains a player with special abilities. He finished the 2019/20 campaign with a decent return of 7 goals and 7 assists in 35 matches. He can still add to it once the Champions League resumes.

Coman still has two years left on his current contract with Bayern Munich. However, the fact that he may set to fall behind Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane in the pecking order next season could sway his decision in our favour.

A more than capable alternative for Sancho, Coman, should he make the switch, will be linking up with international teammates Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial.

With the 24-year-old open to joining Old Trafford, it will be interesting to see if United press ahead with the interest in Coman. Or whether they decide to wait it out to sign Sancho.
