Kingsley Coman’s desire to play in the Premier League is one of the main factors in his recent decision to reject a new contract offer from Bayern Munich.
Sky in Germany report that the France international winger is becoming increasingly unsettled at Bayern, where he has asked for a significant pay rise and feels underappreciated.
Coman is understood to be looking for a new deal at the financial level of Leroy Sane, who joined Bayern Munich from Manchester City last summer.
The 25-year-old has been with Bayern since 2015 but his current deal runs until the summer of 2023, making the renewal less of a priority for the Bavarians.
Club president Uli Hoeness said in an interview with MagentaTV: “We’re very relaxed there. I think the financial ceilings will not be exceeded.
“If he doesn’t accept it, in the end you have to be consistent as a club.
“With [David] Alaba, we obviously didn’t like to lose him but the contract expired. With Kingsley, we still have two years – until then a lot will happen in the world.”
