Inter Milan have reportedly raised their offer for Benjamin Pavard but it might not be enough to sway Bayern Munich.

The Nerazzurri are determined to sign a new defender in the final stages of the summer transfer market.

The Italian giants are now chasing Pavard and even Inter manager Simone Inzaghi admitted as much in today’s press conference.

The 2018 World Cup winner has been plying his trade at Bayern since 2019. His contract with the club still runs for another year.

But despite the risk of losing the player’s services for free next summer, the stubborn Bavarians aren’t willing to offer any discounts.

According to Sky Sport Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg, Inter Milan have raised their offer to almost 35 million euros with add-ons.

This is a considerably large sum for the Nerazzurri who have been hesitant in their spending throughout the summer transfer session.

It appears that Giuseppe Marotta and company are willing to throw caution to the wind and go all-in for Pavard.

But even with their improved bid, the Beneamata still fell short of Bayern Munich’s valuation. Plettenberg explains that the Bundesliga giants are still holding out for 40 million euros in addition to bonuses.

Moreover, the German journalist expects Pavard to sit on the bench later this evening as Bayern take on Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga opening fixture.

As the source reveals, Morocco international Noussair Mazraoui should start at right-back based on Bayern’s latest training session.
