Bayern have taken up the option to sign the France international on a permanent basis in a clause included on his loan deal.
Bayern Munich have officially announced they have signed Kingsley Coman from Juventus after the Bundesliga champions agreed to pay the reported €21million fee required to make his move permanent.
“Kingsley Coman is an important building block for the future of our team, so we decided to take up the option,” chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said through the club’s official website.
“Kingsley is a player with great potential. We’re convinced that he will help us in the coming years.”

Coman joined Bayern on a two-year loan deal in 2015, and an option was included to make the deal permanent in the future.
There had been reports that Premier League clubs Chelsea and Manchester City are interested in signing the midfielder if Bayern refuse to sign him permanently, but he has now signed for Bayern.
Kingsley Conan has made 23 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring twice.
