Kingsley Coman, a key contributor to Bayern Munich’s successes over the past few seasons, has two years left on his current contract, and has been locked in negotiations with the club over an extension. He wants a raise (at the threat of leaving for a new challenge), but Bayern drive a hard bargain.
Coman’s camp have been using supposed interest from Premier League sides Chelsea and Manchester United to help their cause, and that’s again the card they’re playing as per Sky Deutschland (via Sky Sports). Their latest report claims that Coman has rejected Bayern’s latest offer, and is instead eyeing a move to England after six years and 200 appearances in Germany.
Bayern president Uli Hoeness doesn’t sound too concerned however.
“We’re very relaxed there. I think the financial ceilings will not be exceeded. If he doesn’t accept it, in the end you have to be consistent as a club.
“With [David] Alaba, we obviously didn’t like to lose him but the contract expired. With Kingsley, we still have two years — until then a lot will happen in the world.”

Doesn’t sound like Coman, who still just 25 (as of three days ago!), is leaving anytime soon.
