Kingsley Coman keen on permanent Bayern Munich transfer from Juventus
Kingsley Coman has expressed a desire to turn his loan at Bayern Munich into a full-time move.
Coman, 20, signed for Bayern from Juventus on a two-year loan deal last summer, and the Bundesliga champions have the option to make the move permanent.
He told kicker: "I would like to stay. When I arrived, it was my intention to stay for a longer period. Bayern Munich are one of the best teams in the world and I want to play here for many, many years."
The France international has emerged as a key player for Bayern last season, scoring six goals and assisting 12 in all competitions in 35 matches.
The winger, who was brought on in the second half of France's Euro 2016 final defeat against Portugal, is likely to stay in Germany.
Bayern-CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told dpa on Thursday that the club is ready to trigger the option to buy Coman at the end of the two-year loan deal.
"We will do that in all likelihood," he said.
The Bavarians, who paid a €7 million loan fee, can permanently sign the midfielder for a fixed price of €21m from the Bianconeri.
