Man Utd transfer target Kingsley Coman faces £43,000 fine for driving to Bayern training in Mercedes instead of Audi
15th March 2021

BAYERN MUNICH'S Kingsley Coman is set to be slapped with a £43,000 fine for driving the wrong car to training.

The 24-year-old cheekily rocked up to Bayern's training base in his Mercedes AMG rather than the company car laid on by club sponsors Audi.

Coman – who has been linked with Manchester United – was snapped being held at the gates by security and was forced to park his personal white SUV on the street.

Bild reports that Bayern stars are obliged to arrive for business appointments, including training, in the Audi provided to them.

In January 2020, sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic put his foot down after a number of players opted to drive to work in their personal luxury motors.

A ban on the practice came from the top and was reportedly imposed by club chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Only cars made by shareholder Audi and the VW group are permitted and a fine of £43,000 is the punishment for those that violate the rule.

Audi owns an 8.33 per cent stake in the club and its sponsorship is worth around £42.8million a year with the manufacturer's contract running until 2029.

It is not the first time Coman has flouted the policy after arriving in his £174,000 McLaren last year.

On that occasion he blamed a broken wing mirror on his Audi for the slip-up.


Reports suggest the Red Devils have put together a financial package to try and tempt Coman away from the Bundesliga champs.

The Champions League final matchwinner is yet to agree a new contract in Bavaria and is said to be attracting plenty of interest from the Prem.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could face competition from Chelsea as the Blues have been keeping tabs on Coman since Callum Hudson-Odoi was first linked with Bayern in 2019.

And if Christian Pulisic leaves Stamford Bridge, The Mail claims the West Londoners will resurrect their interest.
