Bayern Munich’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has lifted the lid on exactly what happened with star-winger Kingsley Coman’s proposed switch to Manchester United this summer.
Coman, 24, joined the Bundesliga champions in 2017 from Juventus in a move which cost the Bavarians £18.9m as per TransferMarkt.
The talented French attacker has featured in a total of 163 matches in all competitions for the German giants and has been directly involved in 68 goals.
Despite a host of goal involvements, arguably Coman’s greatest contribution came in the final of the 2019-20 Champions League when the 24-year-old scored the only goal of the game to beat Paris-Saint Germain to the illustrious trophy.
After a hugely impressive season last time out, Coman emerged as a surprise summer transfer target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United who were desperately seeking alternatives to number-one target Jadon Sancho, as per Telegraph.
However, in a recent interview with Sport BILD, Bayern Munich’s sporting director Salihamidzic has revealed exactly what happened throughout the summer and explained why Coman remains in Munich, as quoted by Manchester Evening News, he said: “There was nothing, and we wouldn’t have looked into it either. His goal in the Champions League final should explain enough why we are relying on him wholeheartedly.”
United were eventually able to capture a right-sided attacker on deadline day after the club officially announced 18-year-old Facundo Pellistri had signed from CA Penarol, as per ManUtd.com.
