Manchester United reportedly view Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman as a late deadline day option ahead of tonight’s 11pm transfer cut-off.
Coman, 24, first joined German giants Bayern Munich in 2015 from Juventus, originally on a two-season loan which was made permanent in 2017 for a fee of £18.9m, as per TransferMarkt.
The talented French wide-man has featured in a total of 163 matches in all competitions for Bayern Munich and has so far been directly involved in 68 goals with arguably his greatest contribution coming in last season’s Champions League final.
Coman’s Champions League final goal scoring heroics against his former side Paris-Saint Germain ensured the illustrious European trophy would be returning back to Munich for a sixth time in the club’s history.
However, despite the 24-year-old’s recent heroics, he has emerged as a late transfer deadline day option for United who are seemingly still desperate to secure a right-sided attacker before 11pm tonight.
According to ESPN’s Rob Dawson the Coman is being considered among the Reds’ hierarchy but if the 20-times English champions are to snap Bayern Munich’s attacker up they will need to act extremely quickly.
United set to keep hold of Brandon Williams and Daniel James today despite loan interest. Still want a right winger but Sancho deal looks dead and Barcelona unlikely to agree to straight loan for Dembele. Coman an option but getting very late.
