The French winger was supposedly surplus to requirements at the Allianz Arena last summer and was linked with a move to the Premier League.

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has asserted that the club has no intention to let go of Kingsley Coman.

Coman has become a regular in the Hansi Flick’s line-up this season but he was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United over the summer.

Rummenigge’s comments came after the winger set up Robert Lewandowski‘s crucial goal to ensure Bayern don’t leave empty-handed from Saturday’s Bundesliga clash against Union Berlin.

It was a moment of brilliance from him as he ran down the left wing, got to the byline, and dragged the ball back to Lewandowski who then poked home from close range to earn a 1-1 draw.

The 24-year-old Frenchman has been in fine form for the German champions this season and has remarkable numbers to show for it – 13 goal contributions in 13 games.

“Kingsley is an absolute top player today, and is extremely valuable for FC Bayern,” Rummenigge told Kicker, via Goal.

“He often makes the difference, just when it counts the most. Kingsley is not for sale.

“I hugged him and told him that injuries are part of the game, especially in modern football and that our medical department would do everything to ensure that he would soon be back on the field in top shape.

“Fortunately, that’s how it turned out.”
