Chelsea and Manchester United are in the race to sign Kingsley Coman from Bayern Munich. The 24-year-old winger is one of the top young talents in the world.
Although the German giants are trying their best to extend his contract, his increased salary demand hasn’t been agreed yet. Thus, a move to the Premier League looks to be imminent for the French forward.
Despite the fact that his contract would expire only two years later, the Bavarians are looking forward for a big money deal. The club are looking for an asking price for about €100 million or more.
Kingsley Coman would be the alternative for an unsure Sancho deal
Kingsley Coman joined the Bavarians from Serie A giants, Juventus in 2015 as a loan deal. However, they made it a permanent deal in 2017. He had made 200 appearances so far for the record Bundesliga champions scoring 41 goals and assisted 50 times.
Even though the Red Devils are negotiating their best for Jadon Sancho, but are also rumoured to sign Coman if the big deal is not in their favour. As per German journalist Florian Plettenberg, they had tried signing the Frenchman last summer but the deal broke down.
Julian Nagelsmann, the new head coach of the Munich club, wants Coman to stay. But the chances are very less as the player asked for an increased pay.
Chelsea are also thinking about a swap deal possibly between him and Callum Hudson-Odoi. The latter has been greatly appreciated by the Germans. Coman would be surely loving to play for Thomas Tuchel, who had now won the Champions League with the Blues.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would also be interested in signing him if he wishes to leave the German heavyweights. But, would they sign him as he is one of the players who are most likely susceptible to frequent injuries.
