Bayern Munich appear to be succeeding in scaring off potential buyers after placing a steep price tag on their France International Kingsley Coman.

Long-term admirers Manchester United are reportedly out of the race, after they reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of England’s rising star Jadon Sancho.

A week ago, Liverpool saw their €35 million bid rejected as it was nowhere near Bayern’s €90 million evaluation of their star winger.

As a result, a move to Anfield is being viewed as ‘difficult’ as Liverpool might prioritize the signing of a striker over spending big on an out-and-out winger like Coman, according to famed journalist Fabrizio Romano.

“Let’s see if [Liverpool] sign a striker if they sell Shaqiri,” Romano revealed on his Twitch stream (as captured by English outlet Express).

“I don’t see any possibility with Coman [joining], to be honest,” Romano added. “It’s €90 million. It would be really difficult to sign Coman this summer.”
