Two of the more intriguing storylines on the campus of Bayern Munich these days are the respective negotiations between the club and two of its star players: Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman.

Goretzka was thought to be a done deal until a couple of weeks ago when we started to hear that the player might want more money. Since things hit that snag, we have seen the midfielder linked to Manchester United, FC Barcelona, and Real Madrid.

As for Coman, the Red Devils and Chelsea were also hot on his trail, but now it appears that Liverpool could be an option for the Frenchman. Regardless, Kahn is confident in the club’s ability to convince both players to stay.

“We are in contract talks with Leon Goretzka or Kingsley Coman. Top players want to be paid accordingly. We’re not naive about that,” Kahn said (as captured by the club website). “We’re in very, very good talks and I’m very optimistic. We at FC Bayern have a great package to offer. Here you can help shape an era. We have absolute professionals at all levels.”
