Bayern Munich are reportedly worried that Kingsley Common may be tempted by an offer from Manchester United this summer as the Premier League giants prepare to offer him higher wages.
According to Beld (via Daily Mail), Manchester United are desperate to sign a top-quality winger this summer.
The Red Devils have been linked with a move to Jadon Sancho in recent months. However, with Borussia Dortmund demanding £ 100 million for the Englishman, the club could focus its attention on Kingsley Koman.
Manchester United are reportedly planning to offer the player a £ 260,000 per week contract (before tax), which is almost double what they currently earn at Bayern Munich.
In the summer of 2015, Kingsley Common joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan deal. After enjoying two impressive years with the club, the Bavarians signed him permanently in 2017 at a fee of € 21 million.
During his time at Bayern Munich, the 24-year-old has won five Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokals, four DFL-Supercups and the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League.
Kingsley Koman’s current deal with Bayern Munich ends in the summer of 2023, but the European champions are keen to extend their deal. However, France International could be fascinated by a move from Manchester United.
Bayern Munich may run the risk of losing Kingsley Coman to Manchester United
The coronavirus epidemic has negatively affected the finances of many football clubs worldwide. This has affected players’ ability to raise wages and offer better contracts.
Bayern Munich are among the clubs currently trying to negotiate new deals for many of their players.
The Bavarian set to lose to David Alaba in the summer of this year may be the same with Kingsley Koman, after matching Austrian salary demands.
