"I'm looking forward to Munich and playing for FC Bayern," commented Coman, "I want to take the next step in my career here and play my part in two successful years for FC Bayern."

"Kingsley Coman is one of the biggest talents in European football," commented FC Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer, "so we're delighted we've been able to sign him for FC Bayern.
