Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman has signed an extension to keep him at the club until 2027. The 25-year-old winger from France was on a contract that expires this summer, and until a month ago, he looked set to leave. He has now signed a new contract that will allow him add to his 217 appearances for Die Rekordmeister. Coman has put pen to paper on a four-year extension to the contract alongside teammates Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka. Both men inked new deals this season.
The PSG academy graduate has scored 46 goals, including the header that won Bayern the UEFA Champions League in the 19/20 season, and assisted 52 more. He has appeared 36 times for his country, scoring 5 goals. He has scored 28 goals and provided 32 assists in 147 Bundesliga appearances to date for Bayern. Coman has won 17 trophies with Bayern and 24 overall when you include his spells at PSG and Juventus. In fact, he has not gone through a professional season in his career without winning a title. He is on course to break Dani Alves’ haul of 39 trophies.
Kingsley Coman said: “I’m very happy because FC Bayern are one of the best clubs in the world and I know we still have a lot of opportunities and big goals here,” said Coman, who has claimed six Bundesliga winner’s medals, three DFB Cups and a UEFA Champions League. I’ve been at the club since 2015 — it feels like a big family. Everything is perfect here. My best years as a footballer are still ahead of me, and I’m glad I’ll be spending them at FC Bayern. My biggest goal is to win the Champions League again — and this time, please, together with our fans.”
Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn said: “Players with Kingsley Coman’s ability are wanted by clubs all around the world. This contract extension is another example of how attractive our club is at the highest level internationally. Kingsley is fully committed to FC Bayern, he’s found his footballing home here. World-class players consider very carefully where they sign their contracts these days. We’re pleased that Kingsley has extended with us long-term: when he’s on the ball, the fans get excited. People come to the stadium to see such players.”
Board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic added: “We’re very happy Kingsley Coman has committed to FC Bayern with a long-term contract. Kingsley came to FC Bayern in 2015 as one of Europe’s greatest attacking talents. He has developed into a world-class player with us over the past six and a half years. He already made history with his goal in the 2020 Champions League final and now has a great chance to leave his mark on an era. ‘King’, with his quality as a provider and his goalscoring threat, is of utmost importance for the future of our team. Our aim is for FC Bayern to continue to compete at the top of Europe in the coming years. With the contract extensions of Kingsley, Joshua Kimmich, and Leon Goretzka, we have laid a strong foundation for this.”
