Bayern fears increase as Man Utd eye Sancho alternative with contract offer

Bayern Munich are growing increasingly concerned about Kingsley Coman's contract situation as they fear a move to Manchester United could be on the cards.

The winger has two years remaining on his current deal at the Allianz Arena, but the German champions want to tie him down long-term.

Coman scored the winner in last season's Champions League Final and at 24 is entering his peak.

United have previously been linked with the Frenchman and could move for him if they decide against pursuing Jadon Sancho.

Coman was identified as one of several alternatives to the Borussia Dortmund winger.

And Bayern are worried about the current silence from the player's representatives, reports Bild.

Coman earns £140,000-a-week in Bavaria, but United would be prepared to almost double that and offer him a package worth £260,000-a-week.

He has continued to be a regular for Bayern this term, scoring six times in his 24 appearances.

The Red Devils remain keen on Sancho though and could secure a cut-price deal this summer.

Negotiations previously dragged on with Dortmund as they sought a £120m fee for the Englishman.

A change in their financial circumstances coupled with their form this term means they could now be willing to accept less.

Figures of around £90m have been touted with Sancho himself willing to move to Old Trafford.

Adding a winger is thought to be on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's agenda having failed to do so last summer.

The arrival of Amad has cast doubts as to whether they will continue pursuing options in that position though with the youngster handed his debut on Thursday night.

Some also feel that Mason Greenwood's development may be stifled if his game time is restricted.
