Manchester United have received a boost in their pursuit of Bayern Munich star Kingsley Coman.
The 25-year-old has two years left on his contract, but he has yet to agree the terms of a new deal.
The German giants are keen to take advantage of the winger this summer rather than lose it in a free-game daily Mail mentioned.
Moving away from the Allianz Arena suits both parties as Koeman has previously expressed his desire to look for new pastures elsewhere.
In the summer, Koeman and his family were reported to be trying to force a move to England with his favorite club United.
Bayern’s refusal to meet the 25-year-old’s salary demands is said to be one of the main reasons behind his desire to leave the club.
However, United allegedly have no problems providing the French star with the salary package he desires.
Koeman has won league titles with Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern, and the Red Devils are hoping he can help them do the same.

But United’s rivals Chelsea and Liverpool have also fought the battle to sign Koeman.
The Reds and the Blues are said to be keeping a close eye on the latest developments in Koeman’s contract with Bayern, according to The Mirror.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have been linked with Koeman throughout the recent transfer window, but were said to have been put on hold due to Bayern’s £86m price tag.
All clubs chasing Koeman will also be closely monitoring his health after the star underwent heart surgery last month.
