French star, Kingsley Coman not for sale, insists Bayern Munich CEO.
Bayern Munich’s talented young winger, Kingsley Coman, is set to stay at the Allianz Arena, according to club Chief Executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, amid heavy interest from English giants Manchester United.
Coman has been a key feature in manager Hansi Flick’s squad, nailing down a place in his starting XI and delivering consistent performances, with five goals and eight assists already in his 13 appearances in all competitions for the club this season.
His latest performance against Union Berlin this week was another reminder of how big a talent he really is, with a brilliant run cutting in from the left-wing, dribbling past two defenders, and then pulling the ball back in the penalty area for Lewandowski, who made no mistake with the finish.
The Frenchman was heavily linked with Manchester United in the summer window as an alternative for Dortmund star, Jadon Sancho, but the club held firm, and no real news of a move, even if in the works, was mentioned by either club. Coman is still contracted to the Bavarians until June 2023.
Having trained at Paris Saint-Germain‘s academy, the starlet moved to Juventus in 2014 on the expiration of his contract, winning the Serie A and Coppa Italia in his first season in Italy. In August 2015, he transferred on loan to Bayern Munich before being snapped up on a permanent deal and has gone on to win 5 Bundesligas, 3 DFB-Pokals, 4 DFL- Supercups, the UEFA Super Cup, and a Champions League title in his time with the German club already.
Speaking to Kicker, Rummenigge heaped praises on the youngster saying:
Kingsley is an absolute top player today, and is extremely valuable for FC Bayern. He often makes the difference, just when it counts the most. Kingsley is not for sale.”
The 24-year old also played a big role in Bayern winning the coveted Champions League last season, scoring a spectacular second-half header goal that sealed the tie for the Bavarians, and led to them being crowned European champions.
Coman is fast becoming one of the most sought-after wingers in Europe, and Bayern will have their hands full trying to keep the young star. But going to any other club currently would probably constitute a downgrade, with the German club hailed as, arguably, the best club in Europe right now.
