Bayern Munich 'make contact with Chelsea over Christian Pulisic transfer' to replace Man Utd target Kingsley Coman

BAYERN MUNICH are lining up a move for Chelsea star Christian Pulisic to replace Kingsley Coman, according to reports.

Coman, 24, is being heavily linked with a switch to Manchester United with the Red Devils prepared to offer him a £120,000-a-week pay rise.

The winger remains contracted to Bayern until 2023 but club chiefs fear his head has been turned by the prospect of earning £260,000-a-week in the Premier League.

And now the German giants are already eyeing his long-term replacement.

Reports in TodoFichajes claim Bayern have already contacted Chelsea – who face Atletico Madrid tonight in the Champions League – about the availability of American international Pulisic.

The 22-year-old starred in the Bundesliga for Borussia Dortmund for three years under current boss Thomas Tuchel before earning a switch to Stamford Bridge in 2019.

Injuries have impacted his time in London but he has shown glimpses of the quality he has to offer.

However the report suggests Tuchel would be open to cashing in on the winger if the right offer came along.

Pulisic has only started one game since Tuchel's appointment in January which came in a 1-0 win over Barnsley in the FA Cup.

The German boss was recently forced to defend the star and challenged him to show the consistency required to become a regular in the side.


He said: " Chelsea bought Christian for a reason – for his quality, for his potential and it’s our job to bring out the best in him.

"He proved in many weeks that he has the level to be a Chelsea regular player, to have a big impact at this club and it’s a challenge now to maintain the level and to keep improving.

"It’s sometimes like this and the main thing for Christian is to stay positive, keep his head up and be ready because he can have a big impact when he starts and he can have a big impact when he comes from the bench with his intensity."
