According to consistent media reports, Benjamin Pavard wants to leave FC Bayern for FC Barcelona at the end of the season. According to reports, talks between the club and the player are already underway. The problem: The Catalans have doubts as to whether the Frenchman is a suitable solution.
As „SPORT1“ reports, Bayern’s financial pain threshold for Pavard is 30 million euros, should a departure actually occur. According to the TV channel, the defender would definitely like to leave the club at the end of the season. Those responsible at the Isar, on the other hand, are still hoping for an extension.
With the sale of the French international, FC Bayern could cover part of the transfer fee for Joao Cancelo. According to rumors, the FCB has secured a purchase option in the amount of 70 million euros for the Portuguese.
Barcelona has doubts about Pavard
According to „SPORT1“, Pavard would like to join FC Barcelona next season. According to reports, talks are underway in the background between the club and the player’s side, and the Catalans are also interested in the defensive all-rounder.
However, as the Spanish „SPORT“ has learned, those responsible are not completely convinced of Pavard. This is not so much because of his qualities and abilities on the pitch, but rather because of concerns about the character of the Frenchman. The 26-year-old has recently been somewhat sidelined by both the French national team and Bayern.
In addition to Barcelona, Pavard was also recently linked with Inter Milan. The Italians wanted to sign the defender already in the winter on a loan basis. The Bavarians, however, put their veto. According to rumors, Inter would like to make a new attempt at Pavard and Bayern in the new summer.
