Kingsley Coman has revealed he will have no problem if Bayern Munich sign Germany international Leroy Sane from Manchester City this summer, and has vowed to fight for his place in the team.
Sane has been continually linked with a move to Bayern Munich over the past year and the speculation is heightening as the summer transfer window approaches.
The two clubs reportedly reached an advanced stage in talks last week although a final deal is yet to be agreed as the Citizens are insisting on a fee in the region of €70 million.
If a deal is agreed and the move materializes, Leroy Sane will be expected to feature on the left-wing in Hansi Flick’s team. This role has been owned by Coman for the majority of the ongoing 2019/20 season.
Regardless, the winger appears not to be worried about losing his place after facing competition from world-class players for game time in his stay at Bayern Munich thus far.
In a chat with Sport Bild, Coman, 23, said: “If Sane came, it would not be a problem! Except if the club says to me that they no longer need me, but I think the club knows what it has in me.
“The situation of Leroy Sane has nothing to do with it to do my own future.
“When I came to Bayern Munich we had Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa and me, and I was still a young player, in front of the legends Ribery and Robben! You can see that that’s not a problem for me.
“It is better for the team if there are many players at this level.”
Coman added that he is not in a hurry to make a decision on his long-term future: “I have a contract until 2023, which means we have time. I want to finish the season, after that, in summer, I can think about my situation: what I want to do, what decision is good.”
Coman was on the scoresheet in the game against Bayern Leverkusen in the Bundesliga last weekend.
He opened the scoring in the game which the Bavarian giants won 4:2, a fixture that has been a banana peel recently. He now has 6 goals in 29 games.
The Frenchman has contributed immensely to Bayern’s successes on all fronts this season and is on the verge of winning the 8th successive league title of his career, with Bayern needing just two wins to seal the title.
