FC Bayern Munich, rumor: What’s next for Benjamin Pavard?
Recently, Benjamin Pavard’s stay at Bayern Munich was a long way off – but a contract extension is not yet off the table. That reports sky. The 2018 world champion’s plan is still to leave the record champions in the summer. However, during his search for a new employer, he may encounter problems.
The 26-year-old would rather play in central defence. However, it could be difficult to find a club that will sign him as such, even though he plays at right back all the time. According to the pay-TV broadcaster, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are two top clubs that have expressed a loose interest.
The Frenchman’s contract in Munich runs until 2024. That’s why FC Bayern wants to work on other issues first – for example the expiring contract of Eric-Maxim Choupo Moting and the working papers of Thomas Müller, Lucas Hernández and Manuel Neuer, which end the following year. In the spring there will be further talks with Pavard.
FC Bayern Munich, News: Matthijs de Ligt injured?
Matthijs de Ligt was unable to train with the team at the Doha training camp. A video of the Evening News shows the Dutchman with a thick bandage on his left leg. It is not yet clear how serious the injury is. De Ligt left the training ground independently and with a round gait.
With Manuel Neuer, Sadio Mané, Lucas Hernández and Noussair Mazraoui, FC Bayern Munich are already missing four important players.
FC Bayern Munich, rumor: Gladbach’s demand for Yann Sommer
The poker around Yann Sommer could soon go into the next round. A transfer to FC Bayern Munich does not seem to be off the table yet. Borussia Mönchengladbach apparently demands compensation for the transfer fee that they would have to invest for a successor. According to picture but finding one is difficult.
Montpellier is said to demand between eight and ten million euros for top candidate Jonas Omlin. However, the tabloid reports that Gladbach can be talked about even with an offer of six million euros – provided that a summer successor can be found for a similar sum. Bavaria is currently only offering four million euros.
At the beginning of the week, foal sports director Roland Virkus said that summer would not be given up: “We told Bayern that too.” Sommer let it be known on an Instagram post that he would not be averse to a change. He now has to make “the right decision for my future and my family”.
FC Bayern Munich, rumor: Champions League hope for Sadio Mané?
FC Bayern Munich can hope for Sadio Mané to play in the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain. According to information from Evening News this is already possible in the first leg. For the Senegalese, the prospect of a comeback in this game is the biggest motivation during rehab.
Mané injured his fibula head before the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The record champion has not yet commented on a possible return. On February 14, Paris Saint-Germain and FC Bayern will meet for the first time in the round of 16 of the Champions League – then initially in the French capital.
