Inter Milan are wary of the competition from other big European clubs as they try to sign Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard this summer.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that French international Pavard would be receptive to a move to the Nerazzurri but that there are numerous other big clubs who could join the race for his signature.

It looks clearer and clearer that Pavard will leave Bayern this summer.

The 27-year-old former Stuttgart man’s contract with the German champions is set to run out at the end of June 2024.

Bayern have offered Pavard an extension. However, the player looks set to decisively reject the Bavarians’ offer.

This makes it likely that Bayern will cash in on Pavard during the summer transfer window.

The German giants will not want to lose the 2018 World Cup winner on a free transfer next summer.

Inter Milan To Face Significant Competition To Sign Bayern Star Benjamin Pavard

According to the Corriere, Pavard would be keen to join Inter.

The former Stuttgart man is interested in the Nerazzurri’s sporting project. Moreover, he would be guaranteed the opportunity to play in his preferred position of centre-back rather than as a full-back as he has been throughout his time at the Allianz Arena.

Inter had already tried to sign Pavard last January. This coincided with Milan Skriniar making clear that he plans to join Paris Saint-Germain.

The Nerazzurri had considered selling the Slovakian to PSG for a fee in January rather than losing him for nothing this summer.

In this case, they would have tried to sign Pavard as his replacement. However, Skriniar stayed put and Pavard remained at Bayern.

Nevertheless, Inter’s interest in the Frenchman remains.

However, so does that of a number of other big clubs, the Corriere suggests.

Now that it seems clear that Pavard will leave in the summer, top sides from around the continent will sit up and take notice. Amid this competition, Inter may not have an easy route to signing the Bayern defender.
