On 6 June, Kingsley Coman played as a substitute for compatriot Patrice Evra in the last minutes of the 2015 UEFA Champions League Final as Juventus were defeated 3–1 by Barcelona at Berlin's Olympiastadion.

In 2015–16 season, Kingsley Coman began in the 2015 Supercoppa Italiana on 8 August at the Shanghai Stadium along with the new signing Paulo Dybala, helping him after an hour of the 2–0 victory over Lazio.

Another turning point in

Kingsley Coman biography

occurred when he decided to continue his professional career in Germany. On 30 August 2015, Juventus agreed with a two-year loan contract for Coman to join German club Bayern Munich. In a press conference Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri said the same day, "Coman will be leaving the club. He wanted to go."

In 2015–16 season, Kingsley Coman signed a deal with Bayern Munich on a two-year loan from Juventus for a fee of €7 million to be paid in two instalments with an choice to buy for a fee of an extra €21 million upon 30 April 2017, two months before the loan's expiry. He was given the squad number 29.[

Coman played his first match on 12 September, replacing Arturo Vidal after 56 minutes of an final 2–1 Bundesliga win over FC Augsburg at the Allianz Arena. A week later, on his first start, he netted his first goal for his new club, in a 3–0 victory at Darmstadt 98. The following week, he scored again in a victory with the same margin at Mainz 05.

Kingsley Coman netted his first Champions League goal in a 4–0 defeat of Olympiacos On 24 November. He was runner-up to his compatriot Anthony Martial of Manchester United for the 2015 Golden Boy, awarded to Europe's best football player less than 21 years of age.

On 12 March 2016, Kingsley Coman recorded three assists in a 5–0 victory over Werder Bremen in Bundesliga. Four days later, he came on the pitch as a 60th-minute substitute for Xabi Alonso, while Bayern conceded 2 goals against Juventus in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16. He assisted Thomas Müller's 91st-minute equaliser, before scoring the last goal in extra time as Bayern gained a 4–2 (6–4 aggregate) victory against his parent club, Juventus.

Kingsley Coman was a 108th-minute substitute for Franck Ribéry in the 2016 DFB-Pokal Final, which Bayern won against Borussia Dortmund on penalties for to win a domestic double. It was his eighth club trophy before he was 20 years old.

In 2016–17 season Kingsley Coman made only 25 appearances in all competitions. He had problems with injuries and could not force himself into the starting fixture as he did last season. Coman scored only two goals in his appearances.

On 27 April 2017, it was declared that Bayern Munich proposed their option to sign Kingsley Coman, with the player signing a contract until 2020.

During this season, Kingsley Coman played a less important role under Carlo Ancelotti than under last season's coach, Pep Guardiola. In an interview with France Football at the end of the season, Coman said, "I was perhaps in a position that suited me a bit better [under Guardiola]. I had fewer injuries too. I played more on the wing, and the coach asked me to take people on. That's what I do best, it's the essence of my game. This season [under Ancelotti], it's a bit different, but a good player must be able to adapt to instructions and respect the choices of his coach."

Kingsley Coman in an interview with the German magazine kicker on 29 May 2017 said, "It was a complicated year for me. I thought about leaving Bayern."

However, the 2017–18 season was a brilliant one for Kingsley Coman. He had played 32 games, scored seven goals and provided another eight assists throughout all campaigns until late February, when Coman suffered an injury in his ankle against Hertha Berlin on 24 February 2018. The injury was a partial tear of ligaments in his left ankle. He had to have a surgery that was performed several days later. 

Kingsley Coman returned from his ankle injury in the DFB-Pokal Final in Berlin in a loss against Eintracht Frankfurt on 19 May 2018. He came on as a substitute in the 70th minute.

On 21 December 2017, Kingsley Coman signed a deal extension at Bayern until 30 June 2023.

He started 2018–19 season on 12 August 2018 as Coman played the first competitive match of the season after coming on as a substitute and netted a goal in a 5–0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt as his team won the 2018 DFL-Supercup.

Kingsley Coman suffered from a syndesmosis ligament tear above his left ankle in a match against 1899 Hoffenheim on Matchday 1 in the Bundesliga on 24 August 2018. This injury was similar to the injury Coman sustained last season when he was out for almost three months.

On 1 December 2018, Coman returned from the ankle injury when he came on as a substitute against Werder Bremen in a 2–1 victory. Coman could not play for three months. On 15 December 2018, Kingsley Coman made his 100th appearance for Bayern in a 4–0 away victory at Hannover. On 14 April 2019, Coman netted two goals for Bayern in a 4–1 victory at Düsseldorf. It was Coman's third Bundesliga double for Bayern Munich.

On 18 May 2019, Kingsley Coman won his fourth consecutive Bundesliga title and his seventh successive league title. A week later, Coman won his second DFB-Pokal as Bayern Munich defeated RB Leipzig 3–0 in the 2019 DFB-Pokal Final. Kingsley Coman netted Bayern's second goal in the game.

One of the greatest moments in

Kingsley Coman biography

happened at the end of 2019–20 season. In the final of the 2019–20 UEFA Champions League on 23 August 2020, Coman scored with a header the only goal of the match as Bayern Munich secured their sixth Champions League title with a victory over Paris Saint-Germain. In doing so, Kingsley Coman became the first football player in the history of the competition to net against a former club in the final match.

In 2020–21 season, Kingsley Coman scored a double and provided one assist in a 4–0 victory against Atlético Madrid in the first match of the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League on 21 October 2020.

International career is an important part of Kingsley Coman biography. On 2 June 2014, when he was only 17 years old, Kingsley Coman made his debut for the French under-21 team, starting in a 6–0 friendly win against Singapore and scoring once in the game.

On 5 November 2015, Kingsley Coman was selected to the France senior team for the first time to play against 

Germany 

and England in friendly matches. He made his first appearance eight days later at the Stade de France, coming on as a 69th-minute substitute for Anthony Martial in a 2–0 victory over world champions Germany, overshadowed by the terrorist attacks in Paris.

On 29 March in the match against against Russia, in the first game at the venue since the attacks, Coman replaced Martial at half time and netted his first international goal when set up by 

Dimitri Payet

, confirming a 4–2 victory.

In May 2016, Kingsley Coman was named to national team manager Didier Deschamps' 23-man France team for UEFA Euro 2016, to be played in France. Following his performances throughout the tournament, as his team reached the final, losing 1–0 to Portugal in extra-time, Kingsley Coman was nominated for the Young Player of the Tournament Award, which finally went to Portugal's player Renato Sanches.

Kingsley Coman was one of eleven players that were put on standby for France's team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Finally, Coman was not called up for the 2018 FIFA World Cup because of his injury.

On 2 June 2019, Coman made his first appearance after the injury for France against Bolivia after 19 months of not playing for the France national team. Coman played from 65th minute as a substitute.

Style of play

Kingsley Coman is considered as one of the most talented young players of his generation. He is a quick, brilliant and technically gifted winger, with good dribbling abilities, vision, and good speed and acceleration.

He is able of playing on either side, or even in the centre, as an attacking midfielder or as a forward. Although he is normally right-footed, his preferred position is on the left, which allows him to beat rivals in one on one situations, cut into the centre onto his right foot, and either shoot on goal, create chances for his teammates, or make attacking runs into the penalty area. In 2015, Don Balon named him one of the 101 best young football players in the world.

Reception

France's Under-17 coach Patrick Gonfalone in 2012, when Coman was only 16 said, "He's talented, complete and very intelligent". He added that “His reading of the game and his technique stand out and make him formidable. There’s nothing left for him at U17 level. He’s playing at U19 level for his club, and is already the best player.”

It was no wonder when Bayern declared in April 2017 that they planned to sign the winger on a permanent deal. Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge – who was a highly real attacker in his own playing days – said of the Kingsley Coman "He has the talent and the potential to do great things. He's one of the players we're relying on in the future... we're convinced he'll make his mark, and that's why we have decided to sign him."

Heynckes said of his talented winger in February 2018, "He has a very bright future ahead of him". The German Manager continued "He's a guarantee of success in future years. Perhaps he'll become a real leading player."

It is worth mentioning that Bayern Munich's fans chose Kingsley Coman as the Player of the Month for November 2020.
