Bayern Defender Benjamin Pavard Looks to Inter Milan as Promising Alternative after Man United Talks Collapse

By FPL360


Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard is looking to leave the club after being unhappy with his role. He sees himself as a center-back but has primarily been used as a right-back during his time in Munich. Pavard has expressed his desire to leave to the club’s CEO and has not renewed his contract, which expires in 2024. A potential move to Manchester United fell through, but there are now negotiations between Inter Milan and Bayern for Pavard’s transfer. However, the two parties are still far apart in their valuation of the player, with Bayern wanting at least €30m plus bonuses and Inter offering €25m. Despite this, a solution seems possible, especially as Pavard was benched for Bayern’s opener against Werder Bremen. 
Pavard’s versatility as both a center-back and right-back has been both a blessing and a curse for him. While he has played more games as a right-back at Bayern, he sees himself as a center-back. Under new Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel, Pavard has been mostly used as a center-back but was shifted to right-back for some key games. His flexibility could be an asset for Inter Milan, whose manager Simone Inzaghi prefers a flat 3-5-2 system. Last season, right-back Matteo Darmian played on the right side of the back three in the Champions League final, a role that could suit Pavard’s hybrid style. 
Pavard’s potential move to Inter Milan comes after a failed deal with Manchester United and with uncertainty surrounding his future at Bayern Munich. It remains to be seen if the two parties can reach an agreement on the transfer fee, but a solution seems possible. As the transfer window winds down, Pavard’s options may be limited, making a move to Inter Milan an attractive prospect. However, it will ultimately depend on whether the Frenchman can find a role in Inzaghi’s system and if the two clubs can agree on a fee.
