It was Hasan Salihamidžić, in person, who opposed the departure of Kingsley Coman to Manchester City last summer, when the leaders of the Citizens wanted to exchange him for Leroy Sané. It is the same sporting director who announced, with overwhelming enthusiasm, his desire to extend the contract of the French international striker, which expires in June 2023. The capital club then made an offer of extension until 2026 to the player and his representatives … who made a counter-proposal. Since ? Discussions are continuing.
While negotiations with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting are on the verge of reaching an agreement, those with Coman have not yet reached this stage. The French international striker, who turned 24 this year, has nevertheless become one of Bayern Munich’s strongmen. This season, he has played 37 matches in all competitions, scored 7 goals and delivered 10 assists. Interesting statistics for a player who keeps improving over the years.
Coman gives priority to Bayern
Its representatives therefore decided to await feedback from Bayern management, the dispute between the two parties being above all financial. In an interview with Eleven World, on March 25, the player declared: “To say that I will end my career at Bayern Munich is not impossible, but it is still too early to say. “ Even if Coman’s message is clear, some major European teams – notably in England – remain attentive to his contractual situation.
Pep Guardiola, who has followed the player for many years, has already validated his profile with his technical unit and knows the player’s entourage well. Chelsea and Manchester United also appreciate the profile of the French international even if they have not, for the moment, initiated any approach with the former Parisian.
