Reports coming out of Germany claim Bayern Munich will only sell Liverpool target Kingsley Coman if they receive a bid in the region of €90m (£77m).
Considering up until now it has been believed that the French international could be signed for around €50m (£43m), supporters on Twitter have been taken aback by the new asking price:

90 million for him to stay at our medical room is too much.

Lmao we would pay that much for Erling or Mbappe. He is not even worth 50 million price tag

Good player but not worth anywhere near that.

Never going to happen…..not at that price…
Hope it’s a smokescreen for us to pinch goretzka on the cheap!

We don’t want to buy Bayern FC – just one player…

It does seem as though Bayern are trying to scare off potential suitors with their price tag. Along with Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea have also been linked with Coman in recent months.
The 25-year-old has two years remaining on his contract and the feeling is that interested clubs may have to wait another year before they can sign the player for a reasonable fee.
Whether the Reds would have moved on to other targets by next summer, though, we shall have to wait and see. Coman is a talented player but he is hardly worth pushing the boat out for.
