Paper talk, idle gossip, pure and utter bullshit. Call it what you will but there's no doubt that we're still interested. Particularly when an Irish player is being linked with a European giant.
The Sunday People have this weekend reported that Man United's chase of Seamus Coleman could be in vain as Pep Guardiola and Bayern Munich are lining up the Killybegs man for a slot on their all conquering line-up.
The Everton full-back had been hotly tipped to make a summer move to Old Trafford with Louis Van Gaal well known to be on the look-out for an attacking right back. However, if the Bavarians really are thinking of bringing the Irish international to Germany, that could certainly put a spanner in the works of Van Gaal's plans.
At the moment, right back is perhaps Bayern's most up for grabs position with Phillip Lahm moved into midfield and Rafinha currently first choice. However, despite his remarkable improvement under Guardiola, the Brazilian is certainly expendable and it is not beyond the realm of possibility that Coleman could be the man to replace him.
The 26 year old signed a new five year last summer but it is thought an offer around the £25 million mark would be enough for Everton to let him go.
