Manchester United could be set to land Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman, whose wage demands are too expensive for the German club. United are willing to give the Frenchman the salary he wants if he were to leave the Bundesliga champions.
Sport BILD are reporting that Coman could be “a new case of David Alaba” – who is expected to move to Real Madrid on a free transfer this summer – with the Bundesliga champions unable to meet the winger’s financial demands.
Coman has contributed to Bayern’s title success this season with four goals and ten assists, as well as three goals and three assists in their Champions League campaign.
The 24-year-old would arrive at Old Trafford with a wealth of title-winning experience,
He has picked up ten league titles in three different countries, with the likes of Bayern, PSG and Juventus.
At the moment, Coman’s demands are not much of an issue for Bayern, with Coman tied down to a deal until 2023.
The Red Devils are eager to sign Sancho this summer, and the Borussia Dortmund winger is believed to be their top target.
Having spent the entirety of last summer trying to complete a deal, they refused to stump up the £108million asking price.
But now, they could be able to get him for significantly less, as reports suggest the German club will accept a fee in the region of £75m.
Dortmund were reluctant to sell last year and were successful in keeping hold of their star man – who led them to glory in the DFB Pokal last week.
However, it has emerged that Dortmund made a gentleman’s agreement with Sancho to allow him to depart this summer.
If an exceptional bid is made, the German club will let him leave, with United reportedly keen to bring him in.
While United aren’t the only team in the mix for Sancho, they’re expected to be at the front of the queue.
This is due to them having already agreed personal terms with him last summer.
