Bayern Munich have no intention of selling forward Kingsley Coman this summer, despite interest from Manchester United.
A report from England claimed that United had targeted the Frenchman as an alternative to Jadon Sancho and that negotiations were already underway.
According to those reports they had also discussed a move to Old Trafford with Coman, and that has led SportBild to cover the situation.
They say that, according to their information, Bayern have already ‘decided internally’ that Coman will not be sold this summer.
The German champions are planning on having an attacking trio of Lero Sané, who has joined from Manchester City, as well as Coman and Serge Gnabry.
This is because they know that such wingers can be prone to injury due and so want options in case that is a problem next season.
Bayern have already turned down interest from Manchester City, who wanted to exchange Coman as part of the deal for Sané.
However, they were ‘clearly told’ that this would not be happening and SportBild say the same applies to Manchester United.
Even if Coman were to push for a move, which he’s hinted he may, he has a deal until 2023 so ‘Bavaria has the final say’ on what will happen, and at this moment in time, they’re stating clearly that he will stay.
Where that leaves Manchester United remains to be seen. A deal for Sancho will prove expensive to get done, and if they can’t make it work, it seems Coman will not be an alternative.
