Benjamin Pavard is having a conflict with Bayern Munich. Therefore, he is most likely to leave the Allianz Arena to find a new destination. Manchester United were revealed to be in the group of teams that want to recruit the French defender. However, Barcelona seems to have the upper hand.
A source from Kicker journalist Georg Holzner confirmed, Pavard’s side contacted Barca. The World Cup champion is looking for a new destination in the context of a possible departure from Bayern in the summer. Barca are not opposed to the idea of signing Pavard as they are looking for a right-back, although the Frenchman considers himself a centre-back.
In fact, Pavard’s versatility will help coach Xavi Hernandez have more options. Currently, the Spanish military leader is mobilizing Marcos Alonso to play central defender after Gerard Pique announced his retirement. If he owns Pavard, Xavi will not need to fix Alonso playing in the center of the defence.
This season, Pavard played 21 matches in all competitions and he scored 4 goals.
