Cape Town - Bayern
Munich attacking midfielder Kingsley Coman has revealed that he thought
about signing for Manchester City, before committing to Die Roten.
The 20-year-old spent two seasons on loan at the German giants from
Juventus before making the move permanent last month, in a £29.5million
However, he admits he considered the Citizens before signing for
Bayern but was convinced to stay in Munich after talks with the club
He told French television channel TF1: "I didn't hesitate in relation
to Manchester City or the coach, but because of my situation.
"I'm young, I'm in a time of my life where I need to play. If I
wasn't here, if it was difficult, I was ready to think about leaving.
"But I spoke to the president about the club's project, about me, and everything was sorted out."
Coman has in a short time become one of the most successful young footballers in the game having already won eleven trophies, including the league title in ligue 1, Serie A and the Bundesliga at just 19 years old.
