Manchester United are fighting Barcelona for Kingsley Coman

Barcelona and Manchester United are reportedly interested in Kingsley Coman, where the 25-year-old faces an uncertain future in Bayern Munich.

According to a report by the Spanish magazine Fichajes, Kingsley Coman may face an uncertain future in Bayern Munich, but he has no shortage of suitors. The 25-year-old striker is being delayed by Barcelona and Manchester United, among others.

Kingsley Coman has come by leaps and bounds since joining Bayern Munich from Juventus. Originally signed on loan in the summer of 2015, his move was made permanent two years later when Bayern took advantage of their opportunity to buy him permanently in April 2017.

Over the last six years, his career has been hit by a wave of injuries, but Coman has remained a key figure for the Bundesliga champions throughout his stay. To date, the 25-year-old has conceded 43 goals and 50 assists in 209 games for Bayern Munich. However, the German giants are in a precarious situation regarding the future of the French national team player.

Coman’s current contract expires in the summer of 2023, so there is still some time to find out the details of a new deal. Recent reports, however, suggest that the player is keen to embark on a new adventure next year, where the situation catches the attention of Barcelona and Manchester United.

Barcelona are still waiting to confirm Xavi as the new manager, although his appointment is being hailed as a mere formality. And one of the main targets of the Barcelona legend is Coman. The interest in the 25-year-old makes a lot of sense in the midst of the uncertainty surrounding the future of Ousmane Dembele.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has been heavily linked with Liverpool and Manchester United, among others. And his potential departure would inevitably force Barcelona to search the transfer market to find a replacement, thus making Coman a viable target.

As for the interest from Manchester United, it comes as a bit of a surprise, despite Jadon Sancho’s matches. This is because the Red Devils have a loaded attacking unit at the moment and there does not appear to be any space open even though Anthony Martial is being discharged by the club.

In addition to Barcelona and Manchester United, former clubs Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have also been mentioned as potential suitors for Coman. So it remains to be seen whether the 25-year-old will end his stay at Bayern Munich to join another big-name club, or whether the Bundesliga giants can retain their valuable asset.
