Manchester City are reportedly ready to challenge Barcelona and Real Madrid for the signature of the Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman, reports in England say
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has identified Coman as his summer transfer target, but the Spanis manager will face stiff competition from the two most prominent La Liga clubs.
The lightning-quick forward has recorded 147 appearances for Bayern in all competitions, clocking up 30 goals and 33 assists since joining from Juventus in 2017.
But, due to his injury proneness, the 23-year-old tumbled down the pecking order at the Allianz Arena, making just 11 Bundesliga starts before the coronavirus pandemic halted the season.
According to Sky Germany, as relayed by the Express Sport, Manchester City will try to snap up the Frenchman in the summer, with Barcelona and Real Madrid also keeping tabs on the player.

Coman’s arrival will heavily depend on the future of Leroy Sane, who has been heavily linked with a return to his homeland with Bayer Munich.
Indeed, the perennial German champions are known admirers of the former Schalke 04 winger and are looking to launch new attempts to sign him after failing to close on the deal last summer.
Sane will soon enter the final year of his contract at the Etihad and is understood to be favoring a return to his native country, while the Citizens intend to obstruct Bayern’s plans.
The Premier League giants would reportedly rather see the 24-year-old run down his contract than being bullied into sanctioning a cut-price transfer at the end of the season.
