Bayern Munich board member Uli Hoeneß has been through enough battles at the negotiating table to know it is not quite time to get concerned with Kingsley Coman’s salary demands just yet.

“We are very relaxed,” said Hoeneß on Magenta TV (as captured by Abendzeitung). “I think the financial limits won’t be exceeded. If he doesn’t accept it, in the end you have to be consistent as a club.”

Hoeneß stress patience as Coman’s contract does not end until 2023. That gives both sides plenty of time — about a year — to find a common ground.

“With (David) Alaba, we obviously didn’t like to lose him but the contract expired. With Kingsley, we still have two years — until then a lot can happen,” Hoeneß said (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia). “If he doesn’t accept it in the end, then you have to be consistent as a club.”
