Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard is pushing his club to sell him to Inter Milan this summer.

This according to German news outlet Sport1, via FCInterNews, who report that the 27-year-old is determined to join the Nerazzurri, and that an agreement could be possible between the clubs for a fee of around €35 million.

Inter are now accelerating in their pursuit of Pavard.

The Nerazzurri have decided that the priority in the final frantic couple weeks of the summer transfer window is to sign a defender. And Pavard is the defender in their sights.

Reports suggest that Inter have put about €30 million including add-ons on the table already.

Meanwhile, to date Bayern have rejected Inter’s offer. The Germans want more money to complete a deal.

According to Sport1 Bayern would be willing to sell Pavard for a fee of €35 million.

The Nerazzurri have inched up in the size of their bid, but haven’t gotten that high to date.

Benjamin Pavard Pushing Bayern To Sell Him To Inter

Meanwhile, Sport1 reports, the player concerned is eager for the move to happen.

Pavard has one year left on his contract in Bavaria – his deal with Bayern expires at the end of next June.

And for his part, the Frenchman has conveyed that he will not sign an extension.

Therefore, this could likely be the German champions’ last opportunity to cash in on Pavard.

And that has been the player’s hope. The 2018 World Cup winner prefers a move to Inter over staying at the Allianz Arena.

Moreover, Sport1 reports, Pavard is a bit annoyed by the fact that Bayern are not hurrying up and selling him.

The reason for this, according to the German outlet, is that Pavard previously received a promise that the Germans would sell him.

The problem is that that promise was made by former Bayern Sporting Director Hasan Salihamidizic.

With Salihamidzic now out the door earlier this summer, there’s no guarantee that the current regime will stick to any guarantees that the prior executive had made to Pavard in May.
