The CEO of Bayern Munich has confirmed that defender Benjamin Pavard will sign for Inter Milan later today.

Speaking in a press conference, as reported by FCInterNews, Jan-Christian Dreesen made no effort to hide the fact that the Frenchman is on the verge of leaving the German champions to join the Nerazzurri.

Since yesterday, it has looked clear – Pavard will be an Inter player soon.

Reportedly, the Nerazzurri have been chasing the former Stuttgart defender for eight months. He is the player they want to replace Milan Skriniar on the right side of their defense.

The negotiations with Bayern have been ongoing for a week.

And the past couple of days have been decisive. The Bavarians have given the green light on Pavard’s transfer, and he has flown to Milano where he is in the midst of undergoing his medicals and then putting pen to paper on his Nerazzurri contract.

Pavard can then immediately get right to work in training. The 27-year-old should already be in Inter’s squad for Sunday’s Serie A match against Fiorentina.

Bayern CEO Confirms Benjamin Pavard On The Verge Of Inter Move

Bayern had been reluctant to give the decisive go-ahead on Pavard’s transfer even after agreeing a fee with Inter.

The reason for this was that the Bavarians had hoped to sign a like-for-like replacement first.

Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel made no secret of the fact that he was not happy at the prospect of losing an important member of his squad without securing a replacement first.

But Pavard did what he could to put pressure and force a move.

The Frenchman went on “strike” by missing several Bayern training sessions. And now, he has shown his eagerness to become an Inter player already with some social media posts.

Inter have gotten their man.

“Pavard flew to Milano yesterday, and will undergo his medicals today,” Bayern CEO Dreesen said.

“So provided he passes them, he will become an Inter player.”

Dreesens said of Pavard that “He spent four good years here.”

He also noted that “We’re working on signing a replacement. But as of now, I can’t confirm or deny any names.”
