Bayern Munich are reportedly fearful that Kingsley Coman could reject a new contract at the club, amid potential interest from Manchester United.
The 24-year-old has one of the best CV’s in world football, having won league titles at Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and most recently with Bayern, where he has helped the club to five successive Bundesliga crowns.
This year, in particular, has been special for Hansi Flick’s side who have won six trophies in the past eight months, including the Champions League and most recently the Club World Cup.
The French international – who missed out on his nation’s World Cup win in 2018 due to injury – has been a pivotal part of the German side’s recent success, yet he could well be heading for an exit from the club in the near future.
According to German outlet Bild, Bayern are worried that the winger could turn down a new deal at the Allianz Arena, after being ‘tempted’ by a move to Manchester United.
The Red Devils seemingly have a firm interest in the player and were previously linked with a move for him over the summer, as they looked at alternatives to Borussia Dortmund man Jadon Sancho.
The report suggests that United would be willing to pay Coman as much as £260,000-a-week if he were to move to Old Trafford, with that wage seemingly far beyond what his current club can afford.
Coman has scored three league goals this season and has provided a further nine assists, and whilst the winger has two-and-a-half years remaining on his current deal, Bayern will be wary of allowing the player to run down his deal following teammate David Alaba’s announcement he will leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the current campaign.
As for United, they are currently in the market for a new winger after having once again spent much of the campaign without a genuine right-sided player.
While Coman is more comfortable on the left, he has been deployed on the right in the past and would be an upgrade on their current options.
