Benjamin Pavard is apparently about to extend his contract with Bayern. This comes as a surprise based on previous media reports.
A report by Corriere dello Sport According to Benjamin Pavard, FC Bayern Munich is about to extend his contract. According to this, the Frenchman is currently still on the market, but he is said to be much closer to expanding his working paper than to leaving.
Inter Milan are said to have made serious efforts to sign Pavard in January, but Bayern are said to have thwarted the 27-year-old. FC Barcelona is also said to be interested, but a summer transfer could be difficult for the Catalans from a financial point of view.
The reason for Pavard’s rethinking should be two developments: On the one hand, the Bayern board made it clear to him that the club was counting on him. And on the other hand, the relationship with coach Julian Nagelsmann has improved.
Pavard’s contract runs until 2024, but the German record champions do not want to go into a final season with the French international and risk a free transfer.
Due to Pavard’s contract situation, there should soon be more clarity about the future of the ex-Stuttgarter. Bayern officials and Julian Nagelsmann have always emphasized that they are interested in extending Pavard’s contract. If that doesn’t happen, numerous top clubs are likely to knock on the door of the German champions.
