Chelsea and Manchester United are both being linked with a potential transfer swoop for Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman.
However, it could be that the Blues are more likely to sign Coman for a variety of reasons.
According to Bild, as translated by the Daily Express, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel’s Bundesliga connections could put them in a good position, as well as the French contingent at the club.
The report adds that Chelsea could price Man Utd out of a deal, which is likely to cost around £55million, though it may also be that the Red Devils are prioritising a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho instead.
Chelsea would surely benefit from signing Coman as an upgrade on inconsistent performers like Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
