Kingsley Coman is on his way out of Juventus, manager Massimiliano Allegri asserted on Saturday during prematch press conference. Coman is also not part of Juventus's 21-man squad for their match against AS Roma.

Reports on Friday indicated Coman was close to a transfer to Bayern Munich, supposedly heading to Munich this weekend to complete his medical. BILD reports a fee of around €20 million, but Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio believes Coman could come to Bayern this summer on a €7 million season-long loan with a €20 million buy option.

Allegri was the manager who introduced the 19-year-old to the world, giving him 22 appearances (eight starts) over the past 12 months. The frenchman would be the second player the second-year manager has relinquished to Bayern this summer, already having to part ways with Arturo Vidal.
