Inter Milan have reportedly received guarantees from Bayern Munich over the transfer of Benjamin Pavard.

The two clubs have already reached an agreement in principle on the matter. The Nerazzurri will pay 30 million euros plus add-ons for the 27-year-old’s services.

The 2018 World Cup winner will effectively replace Milan Skriniar who joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.

Although Pavard’s contract expires in less than a year, the Italian giants are hellbent on sealing the operation, even if it means splashing a considerable amount of cash.

Yesterday, the defender skipped training, with the club’s official statement claiming he’s ill. Many have doubted the validity of the story, believing that the player was holding a protest.

But as we reported earlier today, Pavard returned to training this morning, putting an end to the brief debacle.

However, FcInterNews insists that the player’s transfer to Inter isn’t in doubt. The source claims that Bayern have already given Inter guarantees on the imminent operation.

The remaining obstacle at the moment seems to be the arrival of a competent replacement at Bayern.

Inter Milan Have Received Guarantees From Bayern Munich Regarding The Transfer Of Benjamin Pavard

The Bavarian giants are reportedly searching the market for a suitable alternative before giving Pavard the green light to join the Nerazzurri.

But while the transfer seems to be almost imminent, the timing remains uncertain. For his part, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi would love to have Pavard at his disposal before Monday’s away encounter against Cagliari.

The 47-year-old should be able to rely on the services of Matteo Darmian who shook off a recent injury scare. However, Francesco Acerbi is unlikely to make his return to action ahead of the Sardinian trip.
