Bayern Munich are adamant they will not sell Kinglsey Coman to Manchester City despite signing Leroy Sane earlier this month
Bayern brought in Sane from Manchester City for an initial £44.7million plus several add-ons at the beginning of July but are willing to keep hold of Coman, too.
Despite falling down the pecking order at the Allianz Arena, the French winger remains an important first-team member for Hansi Flick’s side and will not be allowed to leave this summer.
Manchester United have emerged as potential suitors for Coman as they have so far failed to persuade Borussia Dortmund to soften their stance on Jadon Sancho’s £100million asking price.
The Red Devils see Coman as an affordable alternative to the English starlet, but according to the Metro, the ‘Bavarians’ are determined to keep the 24-year-old winger in the Bundesliga.
Former Juventus man has endured an injury-riddled career at Bayern, although he’s often been a difference-maker when fully fit.
During 2019/20, he racked up seven goals and seven assists across various competitions and should play a significant role in Bayern’s Champions League quest.
Instead of offloading the quick-silver forward, the German champions have decided against triggering an option to buy Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho permanently.
The same goes for Ivan Perisic, who will return to Inter Milan as soon as Bayern’s Champions League campaign is over.
