Kingsley Coman has extended his spell at Bayern Munich. As expected, the club agreed to pay his €21 million clause to Juventus to make his current loan deal permanent.
The 20-year old French winger arrived at the club in 2015 from Juventus and he now has a contract with Munich until 2020. A year ago, his two-year loan cost the Bavarians €7 million. Bayern in return had the option to make the deal permanent at any time until summer 2017.
Coman himself got used to Munich quickly and found himself playing surprisingly many minutes in his debut year. On 35 occasions in all three competitions, Coman found the back of the net six times (4 Bundesliga, 2 Champions League), while assisting on another twelve (6 each).
During the Euro in his home country, France, the youngster found himself on the edge of the starting XI throughout the tournament. he took home the award for second best young player. He particularly convinced with his energy, speed and game-changing abilities.
Coman set to play key role
His most remarkable appearance for Bayern came in the round of 16 against his former team Juventus (4:2 after extra-time), where he scored and assisted a goal in quick succession. Considering Arjen Robben’s and Franck Ribéry’s injury history and age, Coman will likely play a key part in the upcoming seasons.
When keeping in mind his terrific achievements at only the age of 20, there was never a doubt in anyone’s mind that the €21 million would be paid to keep him in the Bundesliga. In just over three years of professional football, Coman collected nine team titles:
- German championship, German cup win and Italian Supercup win in 2015-16
- Italian championship and Italian cup win in 2014-15
- French championship, French league cup win and French Supercup win in 2013-14
- French championship in 2012-13
