Where Kingsley Coman could fit into Man Utd line up as Bayern fear Red Devils will land versatile star in transfer

MANCHESTER UNITED fans will be buzzing at the prospect of Kingsley Coman in their line-up, and this is how it could look.

Reports suggest that the Red Devils are preparing a £260k-a-week offer for the French international.

Coman’s current deal at the Allianz Arena runs until 2023 but he apparently is looking for a big increase on his current £140,000-a-week terms.

According to German newspaper Bild, United have put together a package to tempt the France international away from the Bundesliga and are looking to make him one of their big buys this summer.

Coman, 24, can play in a number of positions and his versatility could be a huge asset for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils look set to lose Paul Pogba after agent Mino Raiola's comments last year that he is done at Man Utd.

But there's still plenty of attacking talent at Old Trafford with intense competition for places.

Coman's favoured position is on the right side of an attacking line-up where Pogba and Marcus Rashford have been playing.

If the Frenchman does play on the right then Rashford could lead the line with Anthony Martial out left.


But another option is that Coman could feature on the left side of an attacking trio in place of Martial.

Rashford could then start on the right wing and Mason Greenwood would be the main striker.

Edinson Cavani, 34, is out of contract this summer after joining on a one-year deal.

Bayern are desperate to tie Coman down and avoid a repeat of their mishap with David Alaba, with the Austrian defender leaving this coming summer for free after failing to agree terms.

Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisted Coman is not for sale when he was first asked about United’s interest in December.

He said: "Kingsley is an absolute top player today, and is extremely valuable for Bayern. He often makes the difference, just when it counts the most.

"Kingsley is not for sale."

Coman is well aware of the interest in him, and was coy when confronted with interest from United and local rivals Manchester City last month.

He said: “It's good to know that good teams are interested in me, it gives me additional confidence.

“But I have a contract here until 2023, I'm just thinking of Bayern. It's all good, I'm happy.”
