The Hansi-Flick era at Bayern Munich has come to an end with the decorated coach being appointed as the German National team’s new manager, overtaking Joachim Low. Julian Nagelsmann, Flick’s successor at Die Roten, eyes a tactical transformation at the club and he seemingly values Goretzka and Coman very highly and has them in his plans.
Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman both featured for their national teams – Germany and France respectively – at Euro 2020. Unfortunately, both the teams got knocked out early in the Round of 16. With the players now in their way back home, their contract extension is expected to be announced by the club soon.
What Bayern Munich’s CEO has said
“We are in very, very good talks with both players, and I’m very optimistic,” FC Bayern Munich’s new chief executive officer Oliver Kahn told a press conference at his introduction as Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s successor on Monday.
“We have a great package to offer; you always have the chance to win big titles with us, and to help shape an era. Both are very, very important players, absolute top players.”
On being asked about David Alaba, who left FC Bayern Munich this summer for Real Madrid as a free agent after several failed negotiations with the club, Oliver Kahn opined: “Top players want to get accordingly paid.”
“We’ve not naive about that, that’s perfectly fine. We have a clearly defined limit [when it comes to spending on contracts].”
