Bayern has tied Kingsley Coman on a long-term to the club.
The French international forward extended his contract with the German record champions until June 30, 2023. Originally, the contract was to run until June 30, 2020.
The 21-year-old Frenchman, who moved from Bayern to Juventus in 2015, as at July 1, 2017, had scored 12 goals in 84 competitive games for Bayern and became a French international during this period (15 caps / 1 goal).
Coman’s career has taken him from Paris St. Germain (2005 – 2014) to Juventus (2014 – 2015) and then FC Bayern where he currently plays.
“I am very happy and satisfied that I will play for this club for a long time. I feel very comfortable at Bayern and in Munich, “said the Paris-born striker, who is regarded by Bayern as a player with great potential.
Hasan Salihamidzic, Bayern’s sports director said after the contract renewal: “Kingsley Coman has had a fantastic development especially this year and was deservedly at Bayern as well as being a France international. We are happy to have tied Kingsley Coman to the club in the long term and are convinced that he will become a prominent feature for Bayern in the future.
