Per Sky Deutschland, Kingsley Coman is reportedly unhappy with Bayern Munich’s contract extension offer. Sky Sport journalist Max Bielefeld has provided three key points of speculation in the latest contract saga update:
- The Bavarians have allegedly proposed an increment of one million Euros on Coman’s current wages, an offer that is said to have disappointed him. In addition, the France International is upset that his wing competitor Leroy Sané is on a significantly higher pay package. “That was not enough for Coman. He is disappointed about the offer,” says Bielefeld.
- Moreover, the 24-year old feels a lack of appreciation from Bayern Munich management. One of the reasons for it was the number ‘10’ shirt given to Sané upon joining Die Roten from Manchester City. Sky claims that it was Coman’s long-term aspiration to represent the prestigious #10, which was previously worn by club legend Arjen Robben. Since the Dutchman’s departure in 2019, however, that number has been subsequently assigned to Philippe Coutinho in his year-long loan from FC Barcelona and now, Sané from season 2020/21.
- Having felt underappreciated at his current club, Coman now wants to leave Bayern and is allegedly interested in a move to the English Premier League. However, the German giants have set a nine-digit transfer fee for the winger, a figure deemed unaffordable for interested parties such as Chelsea F.C. and Manchester United.
After considering Bayern’s steep asking price and that Coman still has two years left on his present contract, Sky concluded that a departure in the summer seems ‘unlikely’.
