Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman’s representative and family are trying to force a transfer to England following rumoured interest from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United, reports say.
The Frenchman was linked with a potential move to Old Trafford after claims he rejected a contract extension – but the Die Roten board remain confident their star man is going to stick with the club.
However, Sport 1’s Florian Plettenberg claims the attacker’s father, a family friend and an entourage Pini Zahavi are pushing for a move to England ahead of next season.
The chief reporter added that United remain coy on rumours linking Coman with the Manchester heavyweights but admitted he is “very talented”
Florian tweeted: “Update [on] Coman: Bosses are sure that [Kingsley Coman] wants to extend.
“But they know that his father, Benoit Menye (family’s friend) & Zahavi are forcing his move to [England].
“A boss from [Man Utd] told me: “We do not comment on rumors. We have scouts all over the world & Coman is very talented.”
Incoming Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann sees the Frenchman as an important player and the club are not in a rush to sell the player as his contract expires in 2023.
They will only consider parting company with the former Paris Saint-Germain ace if a potential suitor stumps up a sum in the region of £60 million.
