According to most reporting and logic, Xavi will be named the next Barcelona manager in the coming days. His tenure will begin near the rock bottom of recent Barcelona history and he’ll be forced to adapt on the fly.

Part of his adaptation will be a 4-3-3 formation that needs a duo of classic attacking wingers. One of the wingers that Xavi would reportedly love to have up top is Kingsley Coman.

Currently, the Frenchman is at Bayern and his contract extension talks haven't produced anything sure as of yet. His current deal ends in 2023 and if Xavi can make an impressive run at Barca in the next six months, then maybe.

The report reckons Coman could be available for around €55 million next summer, if he doesn’t renew, and also notes that he’s only started one game so far this season for Bayern.

Thing is, this still probably won’t happen.
