According to a report from Sport Bild (as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia), Bayern Munich has — at least temporarily — stopped negotiations with Kingsley Coman.

The two sides were attempting to work out a contract extension for the Frenchman, whose current deal expires in 2023, but there appears to be a major roadblock in terms of salary that has created an issue.

Marco Neppe, who is reportedly relieving sporting director Hasan “Brazzo” Salihamidzic of some of his duties, allegedly told Coman’s “team” that he is “unhappy” with the player’s contractual demands.

The biggest obstacle, though, is not any interpersonal dynamics between the parties, but Coman’s desired salary.

Coman wants a salary in the neighborhood of €20 million, which would put him among the highest earners on Bayern Munich’s squad. Of course, Sport Bild also states that Coman’s representatives are using Leroy Sane’s inflated deal (approximately €18 million per some reports) as a benchmark for the negotiations.

Lastly, Coman’s advisor, Pini Zahavi, has reportedly already told clubs in England to start preparing offers given the current stalemate over Coman’s salary request.
