Bayern Munich have made the asking price clear for Inter Milan target Benjamin Pavard at around €15-20 million this summer.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via FCInterNews, who report that the German champions would be willing to make a deal to sell Pavard given his contract situation, though only at the right price.
Inter Milan had already tried to get a deal to sign Pavard done in January.
The Frenchman had been seen as an ideal replacement for Milan Skriniar when it looked as though the Slovakian could be sold to Paris Saint-Germain during the January window.
However, Skriniar stayed put, whilst Bayern rejected the Nerazzurri’s offer for Pavard.
Tuttosport note, however, that Bayern’s stance would be very different now.
The Germans have offered the 27-year-old former Stuttgart defender a contract extension. His current deal runs out at the end of June 2024.
However, Pavard has rejected the offer.
Accordingly, Bayern will be keen to sell Pavard for a fee while they still have the chance this summer.
Bayern Will Sell Inter Target Benjamin Pavard – But Only At The Right Price
The Bavarians will still want a substantial transfer fee in order to allow Pavard to leave, however.
According to Tuttosport, Bayern are asking for €15-20 million to part ways with the French 2018 World Cup winner.
This was reportedly around what Inter had offered for Pavard in January.
Now it will remain to be seen whether the Nerazzurri are willing to put forward the same offer again. If they do, it will likely be enough to get a deal done.
Unlike in January when Bayern still believed that they could agree a new deal with Pavard, the Germans know that now is their chance to sell the Frenchman.
