Bayern Munich have allegedly decided that Manchester United-linked Kingsley Coman won’t be sold in the January transfer window.
With the English giants’ long-running pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho failing to come to anything, Kingsley was seen as one of the alternatives to the BVB man for Manchester United.
The France international is contracted to Die Roten until June 2023, but questions over Kingsley’s long-term future in Bavaria were asked during the most recent market.
However, according to Sky Deutschland, Bayern senior figure Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has ruled out a January sale following the former Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain ace’s impressive start to the 2020-21 campaign.
The 24-year-old attacker has already bagged five goals and set up eight more for his side in all competitions this term, including three strikes and two assists from four UCL matches.
Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele and Juventus’ Douglas Costa were also tipped to make the move to Old Trafford in the summer, but the former remained at the Camp Nou outfit while Costa returned to Hansi Flick’s outfit on loan.
Meanwhile, Southampton are allegedly keen to seal a January loan deal for Manchester United prodigy Brandon Williams, according to The Telegraph.
Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl wants to provide competition for Ryan Bertrand on the left-flank side of defence.
The report adds that Solskjaer blocked Williams’s proposed transfer to the South Coast in the summer, but the Red Devils could sanction a temporary exit in January in order for the ace to get more regular first-team action.
