Big news from Germany as Giants will let Manchester United sign Frenchman for £86 million this transfer window
Bayern Munich would reportedly be willing to sell Kingsley Coman to Manchester United or Chelsea this summer, if the asking price is met
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will look to add a bit more quality to his squad in the transfer window as there has been some reports in the media that the board will give the Red Devils boss a £250 million transfer kitty.
And that has led to some reports in the media that United are very much interested in trying to secure the services of Coman from Bayern Munich by the end of the transfer window.
Coman still has two years left to run on his Bayern contract but negotiations over a new one have stalled, prompting transfer rumours and it seems the German club would entertain offers.
The 24-year-old winger contributed eight goals and 12 assists in 39 appearances for Bayern last season as Coman added another Bundesliga title to his trophy collection.
Coman’s agent, Pini Zahavi, has begun testing the waters in England to gauge possible interest in his client, with reports claiming he wants a yearly wage of £13.7-14.6million (€16-17m) to sign another deal with the Bavarian giants – terms Bayern technical director Marco Neppe will not accept.
Bild have reported therefore that Bayern would be willing to sell the French winger and Fussball Transfers say they want £86m (€100m) for his signature.
However, The report says this asking price is designed to work more of a deterrent than an invitation for offers, with both sides trying to play hard ball in the boardroom.
