Following Germany’s elimination by England at Euro 2020, Bayern Munich appear to be putting pressure on their star players to commit their futures at the club.
According to Bild, Leon Goretzka or Joshua Kimmich do not necessarily want to leave, but their contract situation is giving them a big headache this summer.
Another player who has been linked with a move away from the club is Kingsley Coman, with Manchester United and Liverpool both interested.
It was claimed last week that the Reds have already submitted an offer of €35 million (£30m) for the 25-year-old winger, but they have been told to up their bid to €50m (£42m) – as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via beIN SPORTS).
Sport 1 journalist Florian Plettenberg also recently confirmed Liverpool’s interest in the French star, saying Bayern want him to commit his future at the club, but Coman’s father is forcing his departure.
Now, Bild (via Christian Falk) have reported that Bayern have told the Premier League clubs they need to pay €90m for Coman.
Message from Munich to Liverpool and United: Bayern want a transfer fee of minimum €90 Million for Kingsley Coman. Also the player thinks this is unrealistic for this Summer @BILD_Sport

Coman has a contract at the Bundesliga club until 2023, and he feels that price quoted is “unrealistic”.
The Frenchman has spent six successful seasons with the German giants, where he has won six Bundesliga titles at Bayern. Coman is a highly talented player, but his poor injury record is a big concern.
Signing an attacking midfielder is a priority for Liverpool, with Xherdan Shaqiri, Harry Wilson and Divock Origi likely to depart.
