FC Bayern, rumor: will Zahavi sell the next FCB star?
Star consultant Pini Zahavi could ensure another player sale from FC Bayern after successfully accommodating his client Robert Lewandowski at FC Barcelona after weeks of exchange theater.
According to the picture-Zeitung, the 78-year-old is in contact with Benjamin Pavard over several corners. His advisor is Zahavi’s longtime confidante Joseph Mohan. Pavard and his agent are again with the former sky-Moderator Max Bielefeld friends. This had changed from the pay TV station to Zahavi’s agency.
Zahavi does not have a mandate, but he would “friendly support” Pavard in finding a club, according to the report.
The signing of Matthijs de Ligt shakes Pavard’s desire to play regularly in central defense in the future. The Frenchman had been used mainly as a right-back in recent years and should now be moved to the centre. Noussair Mazraoui has now been brought in for the first position, with Dayot Upamecano or Lucas Hernandez to play alongside De Ligt.
Therefore, and also with a view to the finances, Pavard is said to be one of Bayern’s sales candidates. Accordingly, the record champions would like to generate further income after the costly transfers. As a fee for the 26-year-old, Munich is said to be demanding at least 20 million euros.
Regarding the rumors that Hernandez and Tanguy Nianzou are also on the strike list, Oliver Kahn posed on Wednesday to the AZ clear: “There’s nothing better than having flexible players – Pavard, Hernandez, Nianzou. We’re not thinking about giving up one or the other at the moment.”
Coach Julian Nagelsmann took a similar stance at a press conference: “It’s not the plan for a player to leave us. We have a lot of games starting in September, so we need a lot of players.” However, he admitted: “But in football you never know…”
