Bayern Munich have announced they have triggered an option to sign winger Kingsley Coman from Juventus, committing the 20-year-old to a three-year deal at the Allianz Arena.

Coman joined Bayern from the Serie A champions on a two-year loan in the summer of 2015, but Bayern possessed an option to make the move permanent that was due to expire on April 30.

Announcing the deal, Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club's official website: "He is a player with huge potential. We're convinced that he will be of great help to us in the coming years."

Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer set to miss rest of season with broken foot

Manuel Neuer suffered a broken foot in Bayern Munich's Champions League defeat at Real Madrid and looks set to miss the rest of the season.

The goalkeeper received a fracture to his left foot in extra-time of the 4-2 loss at the Bernabeu, which condemned the visitors to a 6-3 aggregate defeat in the quarter-final.

Neuer, who last month underwent what was described by the club as a minor operation on his left foot, picked up this latest injury during the build-up to Cristiano Ronaldo's third goal, which put Madrid 3-2 up on the night.

Initial tests have revealed the damage, with Bayern saying in a statement he would "undergo a thorough examination on arrival in Munich prior to a decision on the appropriate treatment".

Chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said at the team's post-match banquet in Madrid: "Manuel Neuer has injured himself badly, he will be out for eight weeks."

That diagnosis would rule him out of the remaining five matches of the Bundesliga season - not a huge blow given his club boast an eight-point lead at the top of the standings.

More significantly, he could miss the DFB-Pokal semi-final against Borussia Dortmund later this month and a possible final against either Borussia Monchengladbach or Eintracht Frankfurt on May 27.
