Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman has signed a bumper new contract with the Bundesliga champions.
Coman, who has been at Bayern since 2015, etched his name into the club’s history by scoring the only goal in the 2020 Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain.
The news is a blow to Manchester United, who were reportedly aiming to take advantage of Coman running down his contract in Bavaria in the hope of signing him for free.

The 25-year-old’s previous contract was until 2023 and Bayern have painful recent memories of losing one of their best-loved players on a free transfer after David Alaba moved to Real Madrid for nothing last summer.
But Coman ended the speculation by agreeing the new four-year deal on Wednesday.
