One minor ongoing debate at Bayern over recent months has been about the future of Kingsley Coman in Germany. With the 20 year old having been with the club over the past 18 months, the Frenchman’s loan with the German side is set to expire at the end of the season, and it will then be down to Bayern whether or not they want to bring Kingsley permanently to the club.

With many believing that Bayern may in fact not go in for the youngster, as he has both been injured over the past couple of months, as well as having failed to perform to the same standards that he had been under Pep Guardiola in the previous season, it is believed that Bayern still plan to sign him, although it is still not entirely decided, as revealed by CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge:
“At 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.” Via readbundesliga.com
In this sense, Coman has a little more work to do to completely convince everyone at Bayern he is worth the €20 million fee that will be required, but realistically, it would hardly be a bad investment. The winger is just 20 years of age, and has already proven himself consistently that he is capable of challenging for a first team spot against the likes of Ribery and Robben – some of the world’s best in that position.
Therefore, €20 million is a rather modest fee to pay.
