Chelsea to make move for Bayern Munich contract rebel Kingsley Coman

Chelsea are expected to make a move for Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman.

The 24-year-old remains a key player at the Allianz Arena, with Bayern keen to tie him down to fresh terms. But talks over a new deal have now stalled.

Having signed with new agent Pini Zahavi, Sport1 says the German club have put talks on the back burner for the time being after Zahavi demanded an annual salary raise of €8million (£6.9m) for his client. His deal runs to 2023.

The demands are said to be down to the salary of Leroy Sane, who is on a reported €18m wage following his move from Manchester City.

Bayern have offered Coman improved terms but only slightly higher than his current pay packet, and now both parties have reached an impasse with Manchester United and Chelsea aware of the standoff.

Chelsea are expected to take the lead in a move for Coman, with United focused on signing Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
