FC Bayern München look set to make the loan deal with Serie A giants Juventus for promising forward Kingsley Coman a permanent one at the end of the season.
The France international is currently in the second season of his two-year loan spell with the Bavarian giants and chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge hinted that he will remain at the Bundesliga champions.
After exploding onto the scene under former manager Pep Guardiola, the 20-year-old has failed to replicate the same kind of form under new boss Carlo Ancelotti.
However, with the likes of Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery nearing the latter stages of their careers, Die Rotten have earmarked Coman as an integral part of their future plans.
“With Coman we have an option that is valid until April 30,” Rummenigge told Tuttosport.
“He had a few difficulties after the Euros, but lately has returned to his usual level. We will probably activate the option to buy.”
