As a result of the ongoing Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich transfer saga, a rumour that took precedence in the summer, many kinds of whispers surrounding potential replacements for Manchester City have been floated around since the news.
For example, according to Sky Sports, the Sky Blues could make a deal with the German champions for Sane provided Kingsley Coman goes the other way as a replacement.
Would Kingsley Coman be a good replacement for Leroy Sane?
Coman, who scored six goals and assisted four others from the wing last season in 21 Bundesliga appearances, has been a hot talent for many years now – providing pace and trickery (as highlighted by Bleacher Report) – so on paper, he looks like the perfect candidate to potentially replace Sane at the Etihad.
However, given all his natural talent, the Frenchman has a particularly spotty injury record – having missed a total of 19 games last campaign.
This is the last thing City supporters would want to hear when linked to a potential star signing given their recent injury problems with players such as Benjamin Mendy, so understandably fans have their reservations.
Here’s what they had to say.
Noway he is just a bad as mendy when it comes to injuries

I’m going to go ahead and assume that this isn’t true and continue living my life, because this makes negative sense.
