Bayern Munich has been brave in terms of making decisions regarding contract renewals in the past two years. The German Champions parted ways with David Alaba after refusing to meet his wage demands. Jerome Boateng also left Bavaria after Die Roten didn’t offer him a new contract.

During the last summer transfer window, there were a few concerns regarding the future of Leon Goretzka. The German media reported that Goretzka was looking for a bigger salary, but eventually, Die Roten manage to reach an agreement. The Bavarian club held a strong resolve in negotiations and tried to get players closer to their contract renewal proposal.

Rekordmeister is set to show a similar resolve with Kingsley Coman. According to AS, the German club is set to part ways with Coman next summer. The Frenchman will be out of contract in 2023. With an impasse in negotiations between two parties for a new deal, Die Roten doesn’t want to lose Coman for nothing.

The Spanish media outlet also reported that Coman is looking for wages close to €15-16 million to sign a new contract. Die Roten is not ready to commit these numbers during talks in the summer, which led to a lot of transfer speculation. Liverpool and Chelsea were linked with moves for Coman in the summer, but Bayern reportedly wanted close to €100 million for the winger.

Coman is entering the peak years of his career, so Rekordmeister is well within their rights to demand a big fee for him. The interested clubs will have a edge over Die Roten next summer since Coman will have only 12 months on his contract.

However, the performances of Coman in the last 18 months do suggest that Die Roten will be well within their rights to demand a good fee. Anything close to €40-50 million should be the fee Rekordmeister should be able to get for Coman. Since fans are back in stadiums this season, clubs will be in a much better financial state to pay transfer fees for players.

AS also confirms that Die Roten is looking at Karim Adeyemi and Antony as options to replace Coman next summer. Adeyemi’s representative has already held talks with Bayern, but there is a lot of competition for the German forward’s signature.

In an ideal world, the German Champions and Coman reach an agreement over a new deal in the next 12 months. If there is no breakthrough, then a transfer away from Bavaria will benefit both parties instead of Coman walking for nothing.
