Manchester United are said to view Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman as a ‘very talented’ player amid speculation that the Frenchman could be set for a summer move to Old Trafford. The Red Devils have been linked with Coman in recent weeks, with the 25-year-old believed to be keen on leaving Germany in search of a fresh challenge.

United are said to be in the market for a top-class winger and are reportedly in talks with Borussia Dortmund over a move for Jadon Sancho.

The 21-year-old is known to be a long-term target and is said to have agreed personal terms with the 20-time Premier League champions, who pushed to sign him last summer.

United were left empty-handed after their previous attempt in which they failed to agree a fee with the German heavyweights.

Although a deal for Sancho is said to be tantalisingly close this time around, the Red Devils will not be fully out of the woods until the move is officially signed and sealed.

If things go awry once again, it seems as though Coman could be considered as a back-up option, with his immediate future at Bayern hanging in the balance.

He is under contract until the summer of 2023 but is understood to be angling for a move away after turning down the offer of an extension.

Despite Bayern’s desire to keep hold of Coman into next season and beyond, United’s hierarchy are keen admirers of the player, according to SPORT1.

A club boss is quoted as saying: “We do not comment on rumours. We have scouts all over the world & Coman is very talented.”

However, it remains to be seen whether Bayern will be prepared to sell their man at any price if United decide to act on their reported interest.

It is also claimed that the German champions have been left puzzled by the situation as they are convinced that Coman wants to stay and agree fresh terms.

Bayern chiefs are said to believe that his close associates are trying to force a move to England, which is preventing the Bundesliga giants from tying him down to a new contract.

Meanwhile, club president Uli Hoeness recently suggested that Coman may be sold in the near future if his contract dilemma is not resolved, but stressed that his renewal has not yet emerged as an immediate priority.

“We’re very relaxed there,” Hoeness told MagentaTV earlier this month.

“I think the financial ceilings will not be exceeded. If he doesn’t accept it, in the end you have to be consistent as a club.

“With [David] Alaba, we obviously didn’t like to lose him but the contract expired. With Kingsley, we still have two years.

“Until then, a lot will happen in the world.”
