Man United Held Negotiations With €55m-Rated Bundesliga Winger
Man United have turned their attention towards Kingsley Coman over a move in the summer transfer window. The 24-year-old winger has rejected a new deal offer from Bayern Munich and could be available for €60m. With his contract running out in a little over two years, a summer move could be on the cards, which has alerted Red Devils.
Kingsley initially arrived on loan at Allianz Arena from Juventus in the summer of 2015 before his move was made permanent two years later. However, a spate of injuries has hampered Coman’s progress, thereby also robbing him of a regular place in the first-team setup.
Nevertheless, a record of 39 goals and 48 assists in 188 games is quite solid for a footballer who is theoretically yet to hit his peak. France international, though, is facing an uncertain future at Bundesliga giants, having rejected their proposal for a new deal, as per the report.
This is not the first time that Red Devils have been linked with the French forward. However, for the first time in a long while, it would feel like Coman is an attainable target. The interest in Kingsley also makes a great deal of sense.
For years, Red Devils have been desperate to find a solution to their issues on the right-wing, with their attacking moves stemming heavily from the left-hand channel. This campaign, Mason Greenwood has experienced the dreaded second season blues and it appears as if he could be better suited through the middle after all.
While Man United have signed Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo in the past year, the duo need to be nourished, meaning the Red Devils need a solution for the now.
