Bayern Munich reportedly will not sell Kingsley Coman this summer despite interest from Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea.
Sport Bild chief Christian Falk insisted that the Bavarians will not put the Frenchman up for sale even with his contract negotiations having stalled out of late. There have been reports that Coman is seeking to almost double his salary and it is unclear at this stage whether or not Bayern Munich is willing to pay Coman almost €16 million per year:
NOT TRUE ❌ are the rumors of a transfer of Kingsley Coman to @ChelseaFC TRUE ✅ Bayern won‘t let Coman go this Summer, although the club is struggling to renew his contract (at the Moment til 2023) pic.twitter.com/23FIuFmKmI— Christian Falk (@cfbayern) March 12, 2021
Chelsea’s interest in Coman is allegedly contingent on the London club losing Christian Pulisic. If Pulisic leaves Stamford Bridge this summer, Chelsea was expected to try and convince Coman to make a move.
As for Manchester United, the Red Devils allegedly made contact with Coman last summer and are reportedly ready to meet the 24-year-old’s lofty salary demands. Manchester City’s reported interest is less clear at than its Premier League foes at this point.
The question remains, however, will Bayern Munich eventually be able to come to an accord with Coman over a new deal?
Whatever the case, if Falk is to be believed, Bayern Munich seems to very reluctant to sell Coman even if the player could being a hefty transfer fee back in return.
