Paper Talk: Man Utd to be gifted Bayern Munich contract rebel

Date published: Friday 29th October 2021 8:54 - Rob McCarthy

Manchester United have been given a big lift in their hopes of signing a Bayern Munich contract rebel, while Friday’s transfer gossip claims that Newcastle are ready to raid a Premier League rival for a powerful forward.


Manchester United have been boosted in their hopes of signing Kingsley Coman next summer, with Bayern Munich reportedly ‘determined’ to sell the France winger.

The 25-year-old has two years left on his contract but is yet to agree terms over a new deal.

And the Daily Mail reports that the Bundesliga giants are keen to cash in on the winger this summer. They would rather do that than lose him for nothing in 2023.

A move away from the Allianz Arena would also suit both parties. Coman has previously stated that he would prefer to start a new adventure elsewhere.

There were reports over the summer that the attacker was trying to force a move to England. Liverpool, Chelsea have previously been linked with the player, along with United.

Bayern have so far refused to meet the player’s wage demands, hence the likely decision he will move on.

But as for as United are concerned, Coman’s salary will not be an issue.

The winger, who was previously valued at £86million, has won league titles with PSG, Juventus and Bayern.

There is one potential issue on the horizon, however.

The report adds that all the clubs who are chasing Coman will also be closely monitoring his health. The forward underwent a heart operation last month.
