Bayern hint at permanent Coman deal

FC Bayern München are keen to make permanent the transfer of exciting French winger Kingsley Coman from Juventus.

The talented 20-year-old joined Juve in 2014 after Paris saint-Germain allowed his contract to expire following nine years with the club, but just one season in the first team.

His stock continued to grow, and Coman secured a two-year loan deal with the Bavarian giants in 2015, with Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge now insisting they are keen to sign the France international outright.

"There is a huge probability that we will exercise our option to buy Kingsley," Rummenigge told TZ.

Coman's initial loan fee was in the region of 7 million, paid in instalments, and the Bundesliga champions would need to fork up around €21m to make the deal permanent.
