Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman is back on Manchester United’s radar, reports Sport1.
The Red Devils reportedly ‘wanted to sign’ the winger last summer and were ready to offer him a net salary of €8m per season. However, the Bavarian club rejected United’s approach.
Coman’s contract expires in 2023 and his father, who is also his agent, has tasked Pini Zahavi with finding a potential new club and to deal with Bayern renewal negotiations.
The 24-year-old is demanding a net annual salary of €12m to sign an extension, but the Bundesliga winners are only willing to increase the gross (net will be less) salary to €13m.
If the France international decides against accepting Bayern’s proposal, he could be sold this summer, provided there’s a ‘suitable offer’.
New manager Julian Nagelsmann, who wants to retain the former Juventus man, has ‘already learned’ about interest from the Old Trafford club. The player’s potential sale should see Bayern earn €50m in the process.
It’s also explained Bayern are aware Coman wants to stay with the German club, but it’s his advisors who are creating a problem.
Although reporting the interest from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, Sport1 make it clear Coman is a ‘plan B’ option for the English club. Manchester United will only take concrete steps to sign the Bayern player if they fail to land Jadon Sancho.
The Red Devils have registered their ‘transfer-wish’ for Coman, and will make a ‘concrete offer’ should the Sancho move fail.
