Transfer News: Chelsea and Manchester United have come up with an offer for Benjamin Pavard

Transfer News: According to reports, both Chelsea and Manchester United have made an offer to buy Bayern Munich and France defender Benjamin Pavard

Transfer News: Benjamin Pavard, who now plays for Bayern Munich, is reportedly exploring a move away from the club and has reportedly been approached by many clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea, both of whom are powerhouses in the Premier League.

In the summer of 2019, Pavard made the move from VfB Stuttgart, another German club, to Bayern Munich in a transaction estimated to be worth about £31 million. Since then, the French international has been a consistent member of the squad, filling in either at right-back or in the middle of the defence depending on the situation. To this point, he has appeared 120 times for the Bavarian giants, during which time he has scored six goals and assisted on 11 more.

What’s the matter?

On the other hand, Pavard has expressed anxiety over his playing time with the Bayern Munich side after the summer transfer of Matthijs de Ligt to the club. Even though Julian Nagelsmann has played him on the right side of the defence, the Frenchman views himself as a centre-back in the long term. The 26-year-old is considering quitting the club as a result of the fact that Dayot Upamecano, Lucas Hernandez, and de Light are all ahead of him in the pecking order.


In light of this, Pavard’s agents have extended an offer of employment to two of the most prominent clubs in the Premier League: Chelsea and Manchester United. Because Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger have both left the club, it is not a secret that Chelsea is looking to bolster their defensive unit via the acquisition of new players. Even though Kalidou Koulibaly has joined the Chelsea team at Stamford Bridge, Thomas Tuchel is still looking to add at least one more defender to the squad.

Pavard has been on Chelsea’s radar for some time now, even though they do not currently see him as their top priority in the transfer market. However, now that they have a direct offer for his services, the Londoners have a better opportunity to give serious consideration to the prospect of signing him. The champion of the FIFA World Cup in 2018 might be a useful addition to the team since he has the potential to play right back and provide backup for Reece James, while Cesar Azpilicueta’s future is unknown.

Transfer News: What is in store in Pavard’s future?

In the meantime, Manchester United are also interested in Pavard, but they probably see him more as a potential alternative for the right-back position than anything else. The addition of Lisandro Martinez to the Red Devils’ roster immediately improved the strength of the team’s central defensive unit. In addition, they have possibilities like Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, and Eric Bailly for the two center-back positions.


As a result, Pavard would most likely be considered as a reinforcement at the right-back spot given that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is likely to be sold and Diogo Dalot has not played consistently enough to warrant the position’s consideration. However, taking into consideration the fact that the 26-year-old player aspires to play in the middle of the defence, a transfer to Old Trafford may not appeal to him as much.

According to the report, Bayern has not yet decided on the possible sale of Pavard. However, Nagelsmann still considers him a valuable asset for the right-back position, even though the German champions are aware that his departure would result in a large increase in available cash. At this time, there have been no formal conversations between the teams who are interested and the Bavarians, and it remains to be seen how this narrative develops over the next several weeks.
