Bayern Munich executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is confident that Kinsley Coman’s performances will bounce back to yesteryear’s levels. As a matter of consequence, the Bavarian club would exercise the buy out clause.
Last season Kingsley Coman transferred from Juventus to Bayern Munich on a two-year €7 million loan, with a €21 million buy out clause that could be exercised by April 2017.
After a blistering start under Guardiola – which featured, among other feats, the dismantling of Juventus at the feet of Coman himself – the young Frenchman has had disappointing performances under Ancelotti. This involution has led to questions about Coman’s future at Bayern.
Bayern executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, however, is confident about Coman’s future despite this period of struggle:
“If we have a buy-out option on a player we usually exercise it. Coman has had a less-than-brilliant start of the season vis-a-vis the previous season, but I’m very satisfied with his performance against Hoffenheim. Therefore I’m convinced that Ancelotti will bring him back to last season’s level of performance”, he told German news outlet Sportbild.
With improved performances, one infers, it will be hard for the German giants to forgo the buyout option to acquire Coman in full.
Juventus fans (Coman supporters and detractors alike) will follow with interest the Frenchman’s remainder of the season and the final chapter of a saga that will come in April 2017.
