According to reports, Bayern Munich are unfettered by Kingsley Coman’s injury struggles this year and are set to pay €20 million to make the Juventus winger’s loan permanent.
Bayern Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said,
A the moment we have a tendency to meet the option. We will have our time to decide this. In principle, we are completely convinced of the player. But we also have to state that last season was better than this season, where he’s had some injury problems.
Despite being limited to only six Bundesliga appearances, after going down with an injury in November, Coman remains one of the world’s most exciting young prospects and at 20 years old has plenty of time to improve on last year’s breakout campaign.
After switching to the Allianz Arena, Coman scored six goals and provided a further six assists in 24 appearances in all competitions.
The former PSG product’s form saw him called into Didier Deschamp’s French squad for the European Championships this past summer where he helped the host nation reach the tournament’s final.
If Bayern do decide to finalize the permanent move, it will have cost them €27 million in total for Coman, an incredible bargain in today’s hyper inflated market.
