The footballer would have approached positions with the German club and improved relations
Inter, which was in the candidacy, has already thrown in the towel for the French team
Unexpected twist in the future of Benjamin Pavard. The French winger, who was on Barça’s agenda, would now be closer to renewing for Bayern after a meeting between the footballer’s entourage and the German club. According to the ‘Corriere dello Sport’, the footballer is now shuffling his continuity after improving his relations with his coach and having the absolute confidence of Bayern’s sports leaders.
Pavard was considered at Barça as a good market opportunity. He is a top-class international winger, under contract until 2024 and with an internal conflict with Bayern that could substantially lower his exit price. The footballer, who had a discussion with his coach, had already expressed his intention to leave the Bundesliga this summer but his determination may have changed in recent weeks.
And it is that the ‘Corriere dello Sport’ ensures that Bayern has met with the footballer’s agents to provide positions and talk about a possible renewal. And Pavard has not closed the doors even though he is still keeping an eye on the market. Inter Milan, which together with Barça was very aware of the footballer’s situation, would have already withdrawn from the candidacy before the new scenario.
Barça met a few weeks ago with Pini Zahavi, a representative who approached Pavard to mediate about his future, and they talked about the French footballer’s exit options. Zahavi intended to get him out in the best possible financial terms, but the footballer was able to back down on the price that Bayern had planned to ask to sell him. In Germany, they were talking about a valuation of around 30 million euros, a figure that Barça did not even think about closing.
