Bayern Munich CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen has given a hopeful update about the future of Inter Milan target Benjamin Pavard.
Speaking in a press conference, as reported by FCInterNews, the Bayern executives suggested that there will be a “solution” for the Frenchman before the summer transfer window ends.
Time is increasingly of the essence in Inter’s pursuit of Pavard.
For a week, the Nerazzurri have seemingly had an agreement with Bayern on the transfer of the 27-year-old former Stuttgart defender.
Reports suggest that the two clubs have agreed a fee of €30 million plus €2 million in add-ons.
Meanwhile, for his part the player could hardly make his intentions more clearer. Pavard wants to join the Nerazzurri, and has been absent from Bayern training in recent days as he aims to force the move through.
The problem for Inter, and for Pavard, is simple. The closing of the summer transfer window is now only a few days away.
If the 2018 World Cup winner’s transfer to Inter is going to happen, it has to happen imminently.
Otherwise, the Nerazzurri will have to consider alternative targets. And the player will face the prospect of spending the season – or at least up until the January transfer window – at Bayern.
Bayern CEO: “Confident” Of Finding “Solution” For Benjamin Pavard
Bayern CEO Dreesen addressed the Pavard situation.
“Pavard hasn’t been in training in the past few days,” the executive said. “He’s not been well.”
“First it was stomach problem, and now pain in his back.”
The Bayern CEO also made clear that “There are a few more days to go. I’m quite confident that we’ll find a solution before the transfer window closes.”
Pavard is Inter’s main target to replace Milan Skriniar on the right side of their defense.
The Slovakian left to join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer. The Neazzurri have gone the summer without settling on a replacement, and are now aiming to sign Pavard before the transfer window slams shut.
