Bayern Munich sets a surprising price tag for Kingsley Coman

Bayern Munich have set a somewhat ambitious price tag for French winger Kingsley Coman (27), with a view to him being sold in the summer as the Bavarians set about rebuilding their squad following a disastrous domestic campaign in which they’ve been distantly second best to Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen. 

According to Foot MercatoBayern, who will face Arsenal in their UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg at Emirates Stadium tonight, will ask for 70M€ for the player. 

This figure has surprised many, especially given the Frenchman’s history of frequent and repeated injuries. Coman has just returned from his latest layoff, a medial ligament tear that kept him out for six weeks, only to miss yet another game, Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Heidenheim, with muscular problems. 

The winger, who has 8 goals in 55 caps for Les Bleus, has 5 goals and 3 assists from 25 games in all competitions this season.
