This is a list of the acheivements that Kinglsey Coman has completed in the In the past twelve months.

Make more than 30 appearances for Bayern Munich. He made 35.

Register double digits in assists. He had 12 last season.

Log over 2000 minutes. He logged a little over 2300 in total for Bayern.

Became a French national team mainstay. Coman has made 11 appearances in France’s last 13 games dating back to his first callup last November.

Finished as a top-3 finalist for the Euro 2016 Young Player of the Tournament.

There’s a reason that Kingsley Coman is going to be the subject of a clause in his loan deal that will see Bayern Munich purchase him from Juventus for a fee in excess of €20M this April. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said that it will happen. Juventus knows it’s coming. And at this point little except for perhaps catastrophic injury is likely to but that move on hold.

Because Kingsley Coman knows what needs to happen to earn that transfer and a Bayern Munich wage bill and it’s something he’s been focused on since last August.

"It was one of my goals, when I arrived, to play here for a long time. I can see myself playing here for many years, even if you never know how things will go over the years. Bayern are one of the best clubs in the world and I want to play for many, many more years here." - Kicker, translation via Sky Sport

Kingsley Coman came to Bayern Munich after barely featuring for Paris Saint-Germain as a 17-year-old and was a youth side project for a season at Juventus. At Bayern, Coman came with the bit between his teeth and he has proven both through his skill and his will — and perhaps some fortuitous squad injuries — that he belongs at Bayern Munich for years to come.
