Liverpool target Kingsley Coman dreams of playing in the Premier League and has no plans to extend his contract at Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, as reported by Le10 Sport.
If we know one thing about the World Cup winning France international, it’s that he’s not afraid of big decisions. Or a change of scenery, for that matter.
A teenage Coman took the very brave decision to leave his hometown club back in 2014, swapping Paris Saint-Germain for Juventus.
Just one year later, after growing dissatisfied with life on the Juve bench, he put pen to paper with Bayern Munich.
With that in mind, it is perhaps a bit of a surprise that Coman is still a Bayern player six years on.
Then again, one of the planet’s most exciting wideman has had no real reason to turn his back on a club who have won a staggering 17 trophies since his arrival – including the 2020 Champions League, Coman scoring the winner in the final against his old employers from the French capital.
But at the age of 25, with just two years left on his contract and having achieved all there is to achieve at the Allianz Arena, it seems that Coman’s feet are growing itchy once again.
Could Kingsley Coman really join Liverpool?
According to Le10 Sport, he ‘dreams’ of testing himself in English football with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City both interested.
Coman won’t come cheap – a rumoured £90 million price-tag meant a move away from Germany was all but impossible this summer – but his market value will plummet in 12 months’ time.
And, as we discovered when club legend David Alaba joined Real Madrid on a free transfer a few months ago, Bayern would sooner see let one of their most important players walk out the door than hand over the sort of contract that would shatter their wage structure.
Featuring in 39 games across the 2020/21 campaign – producing eight goals and 15 assists along the way – Coman also appears to have put those injury issues behind him.
It seems a long time ago that Coman was considering his future in football, fatigued by all those weeks spent on the treatment table.
