Benjamin Pavard has left his future at Bayern Munich open. Allegedly, the French have several alternatives.
“I’m very happy. I’m enjoying my time with the team and I want to win all the trophies,” Pavard told Sky sports and stressed in relation to a possible stay in Munich: “We’ll see the rest in the summer.”
The defender’s contract expires in the summer of 2024, so after the current season those responsible for sports director Hasan Salihamidzic would have the last chance to generate a high transfer fee for Pavard. When asked if talks about extending his working paper were on the agenda, he replied: “I don’t know. I’m concentrating on the next game.”
Should Pavard decide against staying on the Isar for a long time, the German record champions will strive loudly sky a separation. However, there have been no negotiations yet.
In the event of Pavard’s departure, FC Barcelona, FC Chelsea and Inter Milan are said to be interested in a commitment. The latter club is said to have courted the services of the 26-year-old in January. However, Bayern had refused to give up the 2018 world champion in winter.
Across from sports1 Pavard had made it clear at the beginning of March that he had no thoughts of leaving: “I never said that I wanted to leave. I know very well that I am in a very big club where everything is excellently positioned. I feel here Yes, I like the club and the fans and I hope we can achieve great things this season.”
Pavard currently plays a permanent role under Julian Nagelsmann. In the currently preferred back three, he has shone as a right-hand player with good performances in recent weeks. He also scored two goals in the 5-3 win against FC Augsburg last matchday.
