FC Bayern München boss Carlo Ancelotti has no intention of allowing Kingsley Coman to end his loan spell and return to Juventus.
Coman arrived at the Bundesliga champions last season on a two-year loan deal from Juventus, which is said to have cost them seven million Euros.
The France international went on to have a fantastic season in Germany, scoring six goals and providing 11 assists.
It was thought that Bayern would make use of their option to buy Coman outright for 21 million Euros ahead of the current season, but they chose not to do so.
The 20-year-old former Paris Saint-Germain forward has failed to replicate last season’s sparkling form and is yet to register a goal or an assist in the current campaign.
This has led to talk that he may be sent back to Juventus, but Ancelotti has categorically denied this.
“Kingsley is staying at Bayern. We are counting on him,” the Italian told Tuttosport.
“There is absolutely no way that he will return to Juventus.”
