"Kingsley Coman is an important building block for the future of our team, so we decided to take the option," said Bayern's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge in a statement. "Kingsley is a promising player with great potential. We are convinced that he will help us in the coming years. "
Coman joined Bayern in the summer of 2015 on a two-year-loan deal worth €7M from Juventus FC. Attached as a rider in that deal was a purchase option that was required to be exercised prior to the end of this April for €21M. All told, Bayern are invested in Kingsley Coman well in excess of €30M, but there’s no denying Coman has already paid big dividends.
Coman was a large piece of Pep Guardiola’s double winning team his first season, breaking onto the European stage so ferociously that he was a critical bench role on Didier Deschamps 2016 Euro-finalist French national team. Coman has been much quieter this season under Carlo Ancelotti, as much a product of his early season injury troubles as it has been Ancelotti’s loathness to effectively rotate his first team.
