Already an orphan of Robert Lewandowski, who left for FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich could also lose Benjamin Pavard (26) during this summer window. Cited among Chelsea’s potential targets to bolster their central hinge, the France international also recently sowed confusion over his future. “I don’t know, honestly”has affirmed, as such, who has 45 selections with the blues in statements broadcast by Sports 1. If the interest of the blues was quickly denied, especially by the newspaper The team, other clubs are still waiting. For their part, Bayern are divided on whether a sale would make sense.
As indicated Sports 1, this Saturday, the former LOSC Lille and VfB Stuttgart defender is clearly not untouchable, moreover after the arrival of Noussair Mazraoui on the right side of the defense and that of Matthijs de Ligt on the axis. With a contract until June 2024, what was therefore offered by the Blues but also by Atlético de Madrid and Manchester United could be tempted by a new challenge. A choice that, however, turns out to be risky a few months before the next World Cup and which continues to divide, especially at the level of the leaders in Munich.
A big dilemma for Bayern!
Thus, if sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic continues to maintain the possibility of leaving the Frenchman, who arrived from VfB Stuttgart in 2019 for 35 million euros, the coach of the German champion clearly does not intend to see Pavard leave Bavaria for September 1. Interviewed recently, on the sidelines of the Bavarian tour of the United States, Julian Nagelsmann was, in fact, uncompromising on the matter: “I want him to stay!” Now it remains to be seen which position will win because, one thing is certain, Bayern are facing a real dilemma.
With Lucas Hernández, Dayot Upamecano or even Matthijs de Ligt, the Rekordmeister has several advantages for his central hinge. On the right, 24-year-old Moroccan Noussair Mazraoui is determined to win. An overview that necessarily opens the door to a Benjamin Pavard game. Two years from the end of his contract, the leaders of Munich could, in fact, recover an interesting amount in the operation. Something that, however, will be much less possible at the end of next season. With interest from Manchester United and Chelsea, Bayern were finally able to give in. Please respond in the next few weeks…
