Manchester United are expected to make a splash in the upcoming summer transfer window as they look to go one step forward after finishing second in the Premier League this time around.
One area in the team where they may need reinforcements is right-wing. Mason Greenwood has been used there for most of the season but his future is believed to lie more centrally on the pitch.
Thus, while operating on the right flank might have been a good learning opportunity for him, sooner or later, the club must find a long-term solution there. Of course, Jadon Sancho is a player who they have been linked with heavily in recent times. But could Kingsley Coman prove to be the solution to their problems?
As reported by Bild (via Express), Coman is in the middle of a contract stand-off with current club Bayern Munich. And Manchester United are said to have made contact with the Frenchman to let him know that they would be open to meeting his contract demands.

Could Coman be the answer to Manchester United’s problems?
It is hard to believe Coman is still just 24 years of age. He already has 10 league titles, won in three different countries, to his name and has won the UEFA Champions League as well. Overall, he has already won 24 trophies in his career!
His individual stats are very impressive as well. According to stats from Transfermarkt, he has made 200 appearances for Bayern Munich through the course of his career, scoring 41 goals and providing 50 assists in the process of doing so. And it goes without saying that Manchester United could do with a serial winner like him in their ranks as they aim to challenge for trophies on a consistent basis themselves.
Coman’s current contract with Bayern Munich runs till the summer of 2023 though. As a result, the Bundesliga giants have time on their hands when it comes to reaching terms on a new deal.
