Bayern Munich have kept their word in giving the green light for defender Benjamin Pavard to make the move to Inter Milan.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

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 Keep Their Word In Allowing Benjamin Pavard To Join Inter

It has not always seemed clear that Pavard would end up making the jump to Inter.

In the past week or so, Bayern have been reluctant to release the Frenchman. The reason for this is that they have not wanted to give the green light on the transfer before securing a replacement.

Now, it looks as though Bayern will sign either Chelsea’s Trevoh Chalobah or Southampton’s Armel Bella-Kotchap.

They will have to do so in the next couple days before the summer transfer window closes.

However, the Gazzetta note, the Bavarians had already given their word to Inter that they’d get the deal for Pavard done.

Moreover, Bayern had also promised Pavard himself that they would allow him to leave. Even if it had been a different board of directors that made this promise, the player expected the move.

Therefore, in the end, Bayern have accepted that even without a replacement already in place, they would keep their word.
