Sky Germany reports that winger Kingsley Coman and German giants FC Bayern München remain at an impasse and may be potentially headed for a split.

Germany's Sky Affiliate cites its own internal sources to claim that French attacker Kingsley Coman and the FCB are increasingly irreconcilable. The wage demands associated with current contract negotiations were always likely to lead to this point, but the German broadcaster reports that matters have not improved in the last three months. Now, it is said, a formal transfer request has been lodged.
Though Coman always publicly downplayed any potential issues with fellow Bayern winger Leroy Sané, Sky notes that the fact that the German international earns more than his French counterpart continues to be a sticking point in the club's attempts to tie the Frenchman down beyond 2023. Coman reportedly cannot accept this slight and remains disaffected by the fact that the club twice declined to give him the no. 10 jersey designation.
Coman is represented by Pini Zahavi, the very same agent Uli Hoeneß famously labelled a "greedy piranha" during the David Alaba contract dispute. Zihavi also advises star striker Robert Lewandowski.
The Sky report closes by noting that the impasse may not lead to a transfer, saying that the FCB will seek a fee in the "triple digit million range" for the 24-year-old's sale.
