Contract renewals have been a headache for Bayern Munich in the past 12 months. David Alaba and Thiago Alcantara have not signed new deals despite the club’s best efforts. Thiago left for Liverpool last summer for a reasonable fee, while Alaba will be leaving Bavaria in the summer on a free transfer. Kingsley Coman could be the next player that is likely to be involved in tricky negotiations with Rekordmeister.

According to Sky Sports and Kicker, Coman has rejected the first contract offer presented by Die Roten. These reports insist that Coman is not satisfied with the financial terms offered by the club. The Frenchman currently has two years left on his deal, so Die Roten doesn’t need to panic as of now.

Coman has come a long way in terms of his progress on the pitch. The previous reports of contract renewal in 2019 were puzzling as the French winger was showing no consistency in his performances. After scoring the winner against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final last year, things have drastically changed in a good sense for Coman.

After Robert Lewandowski, the French international has been the most consistent attacking player for Rekordmeister this season. His decision-making in the final third has improved significantly. Coman also chips in with goals when his team needs it the most.

More from Bayern Strikes

Coman was subject to interest from Manchester United last summer, but there was no chance that Die Roten would have sold him after CL heroics. The French winger has repaid the club’s faith this season by becoming achieving consistency over months. Moreover, the injury concerns are also behind him.

Die Roten needs to do everything possible to extend Coman’s contract. They do have enough time to convince the player as there are two years left on his contract. Coman is just 24, so securing his long-term future should be a priority while going forward. Along with Leroy Sane and Serge Gnabry, Coman forms a scintillating attack that can help Die Roten to enjoy sustained success.

Apart from Coman, contract extensions of Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich will also be on the club’s agenda in the coming months. The German midfielders are the mainstay in Hansi Flick’s starting XI, and they are yet to enter the peak of their careers.

Niklas Sule is another player that will have only 12 months on his contract after the current campaign. There are reportedly doubts about his long-term future at the club, but Flick has always insisted that the German international is a key player for him. The next 12 months are decisive for Die Roten in terms of contracts of young players.
