Kingsley Coman has extended his contract with Bayern. Although Munich will have to dig deeper into their pockets for the services of the winger in the future, there is still no alternative to the decision for the whopping salary increase.
Kingsley Coman will remain with FC Bayern in the future. After months of negotiations, the 25-year-old has agreed on a new working paper with the Bundesliga leader until 2027. This means that Coman is likely to become one of the top earners on Säbener Strasse.
According to information from the French sports newspaper “L’Équipe”, the right footer at FC Bayern will earn around 17 million euros per season in the future. Coman receives five million euros more than in previous years, it is said. This means that only Robert Lewandowski, Joshua Kimmich, Manuel Neuer and Thomas Müller with an estimated income of 20 million euros are ahead of the winger in the Munich salary pyramid.
In times of reduced income due to the corona pandemic, the significant increase in Coman’s salary is not a matter of course, CEO Oliver Kahn and President Herbert Hainer emphasized several times in the past that even FC Bayern have limits on some sums.
Coman stays with FC Bayern because of Nagelsmann
The around 17 million euros for Coman seem to be still available in the club’s coffers, the Frenchman is now too important for FC Bayern. “In my opinion he is one of the top wingers on this planet,” said coach Julian Nagelsmann, praising the speed dribbler last October.
Coman then returned the favor to his supervisor and raved about Nagelsmann: “We haven’t had a coach who had such a positive impact on the team for a long time,” said the 36-time national player, who added: “I’m very grateful for everything, what has been done for me. “
With strong performances, Coman pays back the trust placed in him. However, the injury-prone right winger has been slowed down several times this season. Last autumn, Coman had to undergo a heart operation, most recently he was absent due to a torn muscle fiber and a corona infection.
With Coman, FC Bayern relies on the tried and tested
In full health, the offensive power for FC Bayern is a player that makes a difference, as not only the winning goal in the 2020 Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain proves. “He has developed into a world-class player with us over the past six and a half years,” said Munich’s sports director Hasan Salihamidzic as part of the contract extension with Coman.
Due to the expansion of the cooperation, possible commitments by Raphinha (Leeds United), Ousmane Dembélé (FC Barcelona) or Antony (Ajax Amsterdam) should also be off the table for now. The wingers have been brought into play as potential Coman successors over the past few days and weeks.
But instead of getting an international top star for a high transfer fee, FC Bayern prefer to invest the money in Coman. After all, the people of Munich know what they have in their final hero from Lisbon. In addition, Coman promises: “My best years as a footballer are still ahead of me”. Should the midfielder follow up his words with further deeds, the contract decision of FC Bayern should then prove to be correct at the latest.
