Bayern Munich CEO all-but confirms that they will sign promising Juventus winger in the summer transfer window

Posted by

Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has all-but confirmed that the Bundesliga giants will sign Kingsley Coman on a permanent basis, report the Daily Mail.

Coman came through the PSG youth academy, and remains the youngest player ever to take to the field for the French giants. In 2014 he signed a five-year contract with Juventus, having left the Parc des Princes when his contract came to an end.

The Frenchman struggled to establish himself in the Juventus starting side and subsequently joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan deal. He has gone on to make 51 appearances for the Bundesliga champions, finding the back of the net on eight occasions. His good performances have also earned him 11 run-outs for the French national side.

He does, however, remain a Juventus player, and his loan at the Allianz Arena is due to expire at the season’s end. Bayern chief Rummenigge has virtually confirmed that the club will take up their option to sign him on a permanent basis. The Daily Mail quote Rummenigge, who says:

“With Coman we have an option that is valid until April 30. He had a few difficulties after the Euros, but lately has returned to his usual level. We will probably activate the option to buy.”
