Kingsley Coman left Barca fans fuming as he picks the best player between Lewandowski and Benzema, revealing his desire to play in Spain and England.
Kingsley Coman, a winger for Bayern Munich, has stated that he hopes to play in both England and Spain at some point in the future.
The 26-year-old has been with the German powerhouses for the previous seven years, and in January he extended his agreement with the organization through the summer of 2027.
Coman has won a top-flight championship in each of his 10 seasons as a professional player. Last year’s Bundesliga title was his eighth with the Bavarian team. Coman has previously played for both Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
The France international has won 27 major trophies in his career, making him a serial victor, but he is open to the idea of competing for further hardware in other nations.
Coman has acknowledged that he thought about leaving Bayern before signing a new contract. Coman has previously been connected with teams in both England and Spain, including Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Barcelona, and Real Madrid.
Coman explained to the Daily Mail: “I would definitely like to play in the leagues in England and Spain at some point. I gave it a lot of thinking before we agreed.
“I wanted to attempt something different, but in the end, after talking with [Bayern], we came to an understanding. I limited my conversation to football and our future plans as a team. This was the finest [option] for me.
“I wanted to experience something new, so I had to choose between England and Spain. France and Italy therefore weren’t really options.
“I was genuinely eager to experience something novel—a new league, a new nation, and new people. Of course, Spain because of the wonderful weather there and the Premier League since it is the best league in the world.”
Coman declined to be specific about which club he would specifically consider joining, but he has mentioned three English teams that he respects.
“I’d say the top teams overall. I’m a person who strives for excellence. I absolutely enjoy how Man City plays, especially under [Pep] Guardiola “Coman continued. “I enjoy Liverpool’s style of play. The three major teams are Chelsea because I like them as a team.”
Despite having aspirations to test himself abroad, Coman is for now focused on playing for Bayern and hopes to have more success with the defending Bundesliga champions. Coman was born in Paris.
Coman continued, “I felt like I had more to do here and that’s why I chose to stay.” “My agreement just got underway. I want to prove to the club that they were correct to give me this chance and to truly believe in me.
“After some time, if I feel that I have done my job again, or even more, I might start to consider attempting something else and moving to an other nation.”
Despite having a heart issue at the start of the 2021–22 season, a few minor injuries, and COVID-19 during the course of the season, Coman managed to register eight goals and six assists in 32 appearances across all competitions.
The 2018 World Cup champion will be vying for a regular spot in Julian Nagelsmann’s starting lineup this season against players like Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, and summer acquisition Sadio Mane.

Though he played together with Lewandowski at Bayern Munich, but he picked Benzema over him because they are no longer teammates.
