Inter Milan are hellbent on signing Benjamin Pavard from Bayern Munich before the end of the summer transfer session. But bridging the gap between supply and demand remains the main hurdle.

“Inter are enthusiastic about Pavard,” was the headline that renowned German newspaper Bild chose this morning, reveals FcInterNews.

The source reiterates the Frenchman’s desire to leave the Bundesliga champions and try a new experience.

The Lille youth product has been plying his trade in Germany since joining Stuttgart in 2016. He then earned a transfer to Bayern Munich in 2019.

The versatile defender still has one year left on his contract with the Bavarian giants. Thus, this could be the final opportunity for the Germans to bank on the player’s services.

Nevertheless, Bayern aren’t willing to part ways with Pavard on the cheap. They’re still requesting a figure between 35 and 40 million euros.

For their part, Inter Milan have launched a bid of no less than 25 million euros, as the source reveals.

While Italian sources are offering reasons for the Nerazzurri to remain optimistic about their chances of sealing the deal, the reality is that they must increase their bid to bridge the gap with Bayern’s asking price.

Moreover, Bild identifies Manchester United as Pavard’s preferred destination. However, the Red Devils were held back by Harry Maguire’s failed transfer to West Ham United.

Thus, Inter could be leading the race for the 2018 World Cup winner, but they must act swiftly and decisively to put the deal over the line.
