Manchester City News Transfer Rumours

Kingsley Coman has admitted that a move to Manchester City grabbed his attention before he signed with Bayern Munich permanently.

The highly rated Frenchman has been on loan with the German giants from Italian side Juventus for the past two years, but has recently agreed to stay with the Bundesliga champions on a permanent basis.

In an interview with Telefoot, Coman confessed that he was on the verge of reuniting with former boss Pep Guardiola, who brought him to Bayern Munich while he was still in charge.

“I didn’t hesitate in relation to Manchester City or the coach, but because of my situation,” the Frenchman revealed.

“I’m young, I’m in a time of my life where I need to play. If it wasn’t here, if it was difficult, I was ready to think about leaving.”

“But I spoke to the president about the club’s project, about me, and everything was sorted out.”

The Manchester side had been heavily linked with a move for the talented winger before he signed his long-term deal with the Bavarians. Despite being highly rated, Coman has struggled for game time at Munich this season, with Carlo Ancelotti favouring the likes of Arjen Robben and Douglas Costa over the French international.

Although Coman has stated his desire to stay at Bayern, the 20-year-old has refused to rule out another move, with some of his comments suggesting that a move abroad could be on the cards.

Asked whether he will still be in Germany at the beginning of next season, the winger said:

“Normally, yes. Having said that, you don’t know what can happen.”

“If tomorrow – I know it’s not possible – they buy Messi, Ronaldo and everyone and I know it’s going to be difficult, I could think about leaving. But normally, yes.

“I’m very satisfied with my career. Today, I’m at Bayern. I don’t see why I should have regrets.”

These comments will give fresh hope to a number of clubs interested in Coman, but could his latest comments mean a reunion with Guardiola could still be on the cards?
