Manchester United are ready to jump on Bayern Munich’s dithering over a new deal for winger Kingsley Coman, while Tuesday’s Euro Paper Talk claims that Tottenham are back in for a Barcelona centre-back.
RANGNICK PREPARING COMAN STRIKE
Manchester United are reportedly preparing to strike on Bayern Munich’s dithering over a new deal for flying winger Kingsley Coman.
The France star will be out of contract in 2023 and has so far resisted any attempts to extend his stay in Bavaria.
That has led to strong speculation of a Red Devils swoop for a player who has lit up the Bundesliga for several seasons.
For their part, Bayern are still trying to convince the 25-year-old. However, a report from Sky Sport claims they are currently €5m to €6m a year short on what the player wants from his new salary.
Coman’s demands are said to be in the same range as Bayern’s top man Robert Lewandowski. But it would appear that the Bundesliga giants are not quite prepared to go to that level with the former Juventus attacker just yet.
Those particular salary demands are not expected to be that much of an issue for United.
Manchester United in talks for Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara
Manchester United are reportedly in advanced talks to sign highly-rated Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara on a potential free transfer.
What is surprising, though, is the Red Devils moving for yet another forward when they already have an abundance of talent on their books.
Jadon Sancho was signed from Dortmund last summer, while Cristiano Ronaldo still has another 18 months left on his contract.
There have been strong rumours, however, that Mason Greenwood could be moved on. Edinson Cavani is also likely to quit the club, with Barcelona keen on the Uruguay hitman.
Taking all that into account, a move for Coman may not be as far-fetched as it appears.
But everything now depends on whether Bayern will up their contract offer, or open the door for Ralf Rangnick’s men to clinch a deal.
