Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said that the club wants to buy Kingsley Coman permanently from Italian giants Juventus. The 20-year-old French international signed with Bayern on a two-year loan from La Vecchia Signora for €7 million last year. Rummenigge has made it clear that the club plans to exercise the option to buy Kinsley Coman on a permanent basis for €21 million.

"There is a huge probability that we will exercise our option to buy Kingsley," Rummenigge told TZ (via Goal).

Coman had a great debut season with Bayern. In his first start, he scored his first Bundesliga goal in the club’s 3-0 victory over promoted Darmstadt 98. In November, Coman scored his first Champions League goal against Olympiacos in a 4-0 win. In March, he recorded three assist when Bayern hammered Werder Bremen 5-0.

And, who could forget the round of 16 return leg against Juventus at the Allianz Arena when Pep Guardiola brought him to replace Xabi Alonzo. When Bayern were down by a goal in the dying minutes, Arturo Vidal found Coman on the far right, and it was the Frenchman who made a tremendous cross to Thomas Muller for the equalizer to force extra time. After Thiago gave Bayern the lead, a couple of minutes later it was Coman who made a brilliant run and shot it past Buffon into the far corner that kept Bayern’s Champions League aspirations alive in a stunning 4-2 victory.

In December, Coman said, "I'd like to stay longer. The club should buy me; that's what I hope."

The future looks very bright for Kingsley Coman with the Bavarians.
