Per Sport1 reporter Florian Plettenberg, Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman is leaning toward extending his contract with the club through 2026.

According to Plettenberg, Coman feels “at home” with Bayern Munich. Contract negotiations, however, are on hold at the moment between the club and Coman’s father, who also acts as his agent.

The other interesting tidbit that Plettenberg dropped was that Coman has not received a concrete offer from any English clubs as of yet. There were heavy rumors that Manchester United was preparing to make a bid on the 24-year-old Frenchman:

Coman’s current contract runs through 2023, so there is an ample amount of time for these negotiations to take place. While Bayern Munich would likely love to get a deal done now, this process could conceivably run to next summer, where the Bavarians would need a firm commitment or think about a sale.

Bayern Munich will lose both David Alaba and Jerome Boateng for free this upcoming summer and the Bavarians are probably unwilling to risk having Coman head into the final season of his current deal without an agreement.

For the season, Coman has six goals and 13 assists in 31 games across all competitions.
