Manchester City line up £60 million move for Bayern Munich's Kingsley Coman

The perfect alternative to Alexis Sánchez if that doesn't work?

We are getting closer to the end of the season, and with that comes Silly Season, when the transfer rumors REALLY intensify and our favorite teams get linked to about a billion players.

Manchester City are expected to make a lot of changes in the summer transfer window, so obviously there are a lot of players linked with City. The newest potential target is Kingsley Coman from Bayern Munich.

The young Frenchman was signed by Pep Guardiola on loan from Juventus in 2015, and he instantly became a key player for the Catalan manager. Coman is the prototypical winger, with tremendous pace, skill and ability to cross the ball into dangerous areas.

Bayern announced last week they have decided to exercise the option to sign Coman permanently after his two-season loan for a reported £20 million. While the Bavarian giants have signed the player, they could be looking to simply make a profit on Coman, and given City's serious interest, they might make a BIG profit.

City could be willing to pay as high as £60 million, although a deal could be agreed for around £45 million. Arsenal's Alexis Sánchez is Pep's main attacking target, but if he's unable to sign the Chilean, Guardiola will turn to Coman and look to add him to his group of young, exciting wingers alongside Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sané.
