Bayern Munich set Kingsley Coman asking price; Barcelona and PSG interested

Kinglsey Coman’s future at Bayern Munich is in doubt, with the German giants ready to listen to offers in the range of €50m, 90min understands.

Bayern are adding Michael Olise to a stacked cast of wide forwards which already consists of Coman, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane and Bryan Zaragoza, while Jamal Musiala and Mathys Tel are also capable of playing on the wing.

As such, sources have told 90min that a summer move for Coman is on the cards, though a major stumbling block will be the financial package required to pry him away from Bayern.

Coman currently earns a gross salary of roughly €15m a year. If he leaves Bayern, the 28-year-old would want to sign a long-term contract with a pay rise or on a similar wage.

The only European club at the moment who would be able to freely afford the transfer fee and wages needed to sign Coman are Paris Saint-Germain, who are looking to bring in several players with a budget of money saved from Kylian Mbappe’s exit. However, PSG would still rather pay closer to €35m for the winger rather than meet Bayern’s €50m asking price.

Barcelona are interested in Coman, with sporting director Deco and new head coach Hansi Flick – who worked with him at Bayern from 2019 to 2021 – both fans of his.

At the numbers Bayern and Coman want though, a deal is financially impossible for Barcelona right now. A transfer would require the player to take a wage cut, and Barca may have to attach players as makeweights in lieu of a higher transfer fee.

Ronald Araujo and Raphinha are two star names who could leave Barcelona this summer, but there is currently no indication that Bayern would want either as part of a swap.

Recent reports have claimed an unnamed English club is in the running for Coman. Manchester City would be the standout candidate on a financial level, but there has been nothing to suggest they have an advanced interest in Coman, despite Pep Guardiola’s long-held liking of him dating back to his own spell at Bayern.

As of yet, Bayern are yet to receive any approach regarding Coman and his availability, with all enquiries going to the player’s side instead.
