Paper Talk: France Euro 2020 star instructs agent to secure Man Utd move

Coretin Tolisso, Kingsley Coman France training

Manchester United could land a France star with his agent looking to push him towards Old Trafford, Chelsea’s Billy Gilmour may have a new loan club, while Wednesday’s transfer gossip reports Leicester have swooped to sign a Liverpool youngster.

COMAN WANTS MAN UTD MOVE

Kingsley Coman’s agent and family are trying to force a move to Manchester United amid claims they are ready to make their move.

The France winger is one of the world’s most decorated players, having won a league title in each of his 10 seasons as a pro.

Coman’s deal at Bayern Munich is due to expire in summer 2023 and an agreement over an extension has yet to be agreed.

And that could let the door in for United, who are reportedly considering an approach.

United of course are hot on the trail of Jadon Sancho. The Dortmund man is a long-standing target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and appears close to a switch.

However, Dortmund continue to play hardball over both the fee and the transfer schedule. As such, there’s a growing feeling at United that a deal for Coman could prove easier.

And sensing an opportunity, Coman and his agent are trying to tempt United into securing a deal, writes The Sun.

United at this stage will still try and bring Sancho to the club. But the prospects of signing Coman and the noises being made from his camp may alter their stance.

As per the article, a club official at United is quoted as saying: “We do not comment on rumours. We have scouts all over the world and Coman is very talented.”
