After getting linked with a move to Manchester United, Sport1 reported earlier this week that Liverpool are ‘definitely interested’ in Kingsley Coman and have initiated contact with the Bayern Munich player’s camp.
The winger’s contract expires in 2023 and is reportedly demanding a salary of €12m net per season to sign an extension.
Bayern, however, aren’t willing to meet his demands and this has led to reports of the Red Devils and Liverpool’s interest in the 25-year-old.
On Tuesday, Sky Germany dismissed rumours of Jürgen Klopp’s side tabling a €40m bid and added the Bundesliga winners need ‘at least €100m’ to cut ties with the ex-Juventus man.
Message from Munich to Liverpool and United: Bayern want a transfer fee of minimum €90 Million for Kingsley Coman. Also the player thinks this is unrealistic for this Summer @BILD_Sport

With Liverpool named as suitors for the France international, Bild journalist Christian Falk is now reporting that Bayern have sent a ‘message’ to both the Premier League sides.
According to Falk, the German champions want a ‘fee of minimum €90m’ to let the player leave. The journalist further adds Coman believes a transfer is ‘unrealistic’ for that fee this summer, probably due to the pandemic.
With Falk joining Sky to state the fee Bayern want, one could come to a conclusion that Bayern are leaking information to journalists close to the club that Coman’s suitors need to spend big if they want to sign the Frenchman.
