Kingsley Coman will most likely continue to play for Bayern Munich in the coming years. The long-stalled negotiations to extend the contract, which currently runs until 2023, are said to be in the final phase.
SPOX and GOAL can confirm the corresponding media reports that Coman’s father and adviser is currently in Munich to clarify the final details with Bayern. The French sports daily L’Equipe reported about it for the first time.
Coman will have to earn 17 million euros a year in the future, almost twice as much as now. Coman would be one of the top earners among the record champions.
In comparison: Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Müller and Joshua Kimmich should earn around 20 million euros per year as absolute top earners. Coman’s new contract runs until 2027.
Recently, there have been reports that Coman’s claims are too high for FCB, with a salary of up to 20 million euros.
FC Bayern: Coman is working on a comeback
Coman is currently working on his comeback after a corona disease and a torn muscle fiber in his right thigh, most recently in the last game of the first half of the season in a 5-0 win against VfL Wolfsburg.
After the extensions of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka, Coman would be the third top performer to commit to the club on a long-term basis. As a result, Niklas Süle remains the only regular player in Munich with an unclear future. The central defender’s contract expires at the end of the season.
A departure of the winning goalscorer from the 2020 CL final in the summer has long been an issue with the Munich side, most recently Brazilian Raphinha was traded as a possible successor to Coman.
In the current season, Coman has scored five goals in 17 competitive matches.
