Report: Kingsley Coman changes tune, wants to extend with Bayern Munich

Perhaps someone from his camp finally asked Kingsley Coman what he wanted to do.

A report by French journalist Julian Maynard has shed some light on the status of Kingsley Coman’s contract negotiations with Bayern Munich — and things could be looking up for those hoping the Frenchman will remain in Bavaria.

While many previous reports indicated Coman wanted to move on from Bayern Munich, it appears that the Frenchman either had a change of heart or someone from his camp is actually doing what the player wants to do.

At various points over the past few months, Coman has been linked to Chelsea FC, Liverpool, Arsenal FC, Manchester City, Manchester United, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain.

Regardless, things could be on the upswing:

Discussions started a few months ago between Kingsley Coman and Bayern Munich are continuing (end of contract in 2023). While a departure was envisioned, the trend today is rather towards a long-term extension. #Mercato

Coman is rated highly in England (Chelsea, Manchester City — no direct contact with Guardiola however). Paris is following its situation, but returning to France is not a priority in the player’s mind.

This has to be perceived as positive news by Bayern Munich. The club has made it clear that it wants to retain Coman and now it looks like that pathway might finally be clear.
