All of Inter Milan, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Man United, Man City, and Liverpool are interested in signing Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard this summer.
This according to German broadcaster Sky Sports Deutschland, via FCInterNews, who report that Bayern want €30 million for the Frenchman.
Over the past couple of days, it has become clear that Pavard wants to leave Bayern this summer.
The 27-year-old is reportedly unhappy with playing at fullback. Accordingly, he is hoping for a move to a team where he’ll play exclusively at centre-back.
Pavard’s current contract with Bayern expires at the end of next June. This means that, while the former Stuttgart and Lille defender cannot leave on a free transfer this month, he has leverage to make an exit.
Bayern must sell Pavard for a fee this summer if they want to cash in rather than lose him for free in a year’s time.
Inter, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Man United, Man City & Liverpool All Want Pavard
According to Sky Deutschland, there is no shortage of interest in Pavard’s signature.
The German broadcaster report that a real queue has formed to sign the 2018 World Cup winner. Among the teams keen on bringing Pavard in this summer are some of Europe’s elite.
Inter are one of the main clubs to show an early interest. The Nerazzurri had already targeted Pavard in January.
Inter were targeting the Frenchman to replace Milan Skriniar. Paris Saint-Germain had been interested in buying Skriniar at that time.
However, Skriniar stayed put, whilst Bayern rejected the Nerazzurri’s offer for Pavard.
Bayern’s stance is likely to be different now. They know that they risk losing Pavard for free, and according to Sky Deutschland they’ve already set the asking price – €30 million.
However, Sky Deutschland note, there will also be no shortage of competition.
All of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Liverpool have also come forward.
