Transfer News: Manchester United receive Kingsley Coman boost as Bayern Munich reveal stance over player
The 25-year-old signed for the club nearly half a decade ago and has since been influential to their success in the Bundesliga. However, Coman’s biggest contribution to the club came in the 2020 Champions League final when he popped up to head the winner for the Bundesliga club.
All in all, the winger has made over 200 appearances for the German club and has scored 42 goals and provided a further 50 assists during that period. However, it may now be time to bid goodbye to them as Bayern are ready to cash in on the player next summer as he will enter the final year of his contract.
Man United to swoop for Kingsley Coman?
The former Juventus man has previously expressed his desire to leave and was also trying to orchestrate a move to England in the summer, with Man United being the club of his choice.
The Red Devils are thought to be ready to satisfy the attacker’s wage demands, something the Munich-based outfit is not too keen on.
However, with Edinson Cavani and Jesse Lingard looking set to depart the club on the expiry of their contracts next summer, the Old Trafford outfit could certainly use another player in the forward line.

Although United was Coman’s preferred choice, the Manchester-based club are not the only English outfit interested in signing the 25-year-old. Liverpool and Chelsea have also been monitoring the winger, with the latter being put off by Bayern’s £86million valuation of the player in the summer, according to the Mirror (h/t The Sun).
Regardless, the Red Devils could use a talent like the PSG academy graduate, and they would certainly need him if they hope to compete for the biggest trophies in the coming seasons.
