Many Arsenal fans have been drooling over the prospect of Kingsley Coman coming to the Emirates this summer as a marquee signing to kick start Unai Emery’s era as coach, but alas it looks like we were setting our sights just a little too high.
it was always unlikely that a top young player would leave Bayern Munich, one of the giants of European football, for a club that is entering the Europa League for the second season in a row, and so it has proved.
When asked specifically about the rumours of an Arsenal switch, he replied simply: “That’s not true,”
“I’ve had no contact with Arsenal.
“I’ve just extended my contract here at Bayern and I’m planning to stay for many more years.”
It was always one of the most unlikely rumours, especially when you consider that ever since becoming a professional footballer he has played at Juventus, Paris St Germain and Bayern Munich, and has never been a part of a squad that has failed to win their respective League titles. I doubt he would have continued that remarkable record if he had moved to Arsenal, but he probably will win many more at Munich!
Oh well, it was a nice dream while it lasted…..
