Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel is reportedly still blocking the transfer of Benjamin Pavard to Inter Milan. An emerging report explains the reasons behind his stance.

In recent days, the Nerazzurri made great progress on this front, reaching accords with both the player and the club. Some reports even suggested that the move is imminent.

Nevertheless, the Serie A giants have found an obstacle in the way, as one man in particular is still defying the operation.

According to Sportitalia via FcInterNews, Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel continues to block the transfer, refusing to release Pavard before the arrival of a capable replacement.

As the source explains, none of the potential candidates have truly convinced the German tactician.

Therefore, the former Chelsea boss will keep the Frenchman caged until the Bavarians provide him with an enticing profile.

As we reported earlier today, the 27-year-old returned to train alongside his Bayern teammates on Thursday after skipping Wednesday’s session due to “illness” (as the club’s official statement claimed).

So we shall see if the Nerazzurri will manage to overcome this obstacle and put the deal over the line.

In the meantime, some sources believe that Inter have given Bayern Munich a deadline. The Germans will either allow Pavard to join the Nerazzurri on Monday or the Italians will pursue new options.

Torino defender Perr Schuurs has emerged as the club’s Plan B in case Inter miss out on Pavard.
