Manchester City and Chelsea submit €50m~€60m offers for Juventus-owned Kingsley Coman – report

Pep Guardiola is eyeing a reunion with one of his former Bayern Munich charges, with Manchester City and Chelsea having both made offers of between €50 million and €60 million for Kingsley Coman, according to Téléfoot‏.

Coman is still owned by Juventus, but Bayern Munich, where has been on loan for two seasons, have an option to buy him for just €20 million at the end of the season. However, Coman has not played 90 minutes even once under Carlo Ancelotti, raising the prospect of him joining another club in the summer.

Despite not being as fancied by Carlo as Pep, Bayern may well still choose to sign the 20-year-old because of the low cost and his outstanding potential. Last season under Pep, the French international made 46 appearances, scoring 7 goals and registering 12 assists in all competitions. Now he finds himself behind Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery again, with just five Bundesliga starts this season, and may consider a move to England.

Coman is said to be ‘seriously studying’ offers from City and Chelsea, which Juventus would surely prefer to accept. However, unless Coman kicks up a fuss, then Bayern may just decide to buy him, and could even sell him on to City or Chelsea for a quick profit if he wants to leave.

Guardiola is a huge admirer of Coman and with Jesus Navas certain to leave, and Nolito in danger of being axed, the Catalan coach may well want at least one more winger to rotate with the deadly Sané and Sterling pair next season.
