BUNDES - Winger Antony is Bayern Munich's Coman alternative
The Brazilian is currently at the ongoing Olympic Games and his performance has caught the attention of Bundesliga champions FC Bayern.
The current contract of winger Kingsley Coman has been put on hold. If an agreement cannot be reached, FC Bayern may be forced to sell the winger. Obviously, a suitable substitute is already in sight.
According to 'UOL Esporte' from Brazil, Antony from Ajax Amsterdam would be one of the German record winners' 'main priorities' in this situation. Coach Julian Nagelsmann, in particular, is a fan of the 21-year-old Brazilian who is now performing wonders at the Olympics where he has started all three games.
Nagelsmann intended to get Antony to join RB Leipzig in the summer of 2020, but the right-winger chose to take a lesser step and join Ajax from FC Sao Paulo. In his debut Eredivisie season, he scored 9 goals in 32 games and assisted 8 goals.
Antony should now be available for sale by Ajax for 30 million euros. Bayern Munich is demanding a considerably bigger fee for Coman: according to FT sources, FCB has set a price tag of 100 million euros on the 25-year-old Frenchman in order to discourage interested parties.
