The blues to battle Man Utd after confirming their interest in signing the Frenchman

Manchester United will have to compete with Chelsea for the signing of Benjamin Pavard, according to a journalist.

Pavard came up through Lille’s youth system and went on to make 25 professional appearances for the French side. In August 2016, Stuttgart paid Lille £4.5 million for his services, and he departed Ligue 1.

The defender spent three years with Stuttgart, where he helped the club return to the Bundesliga and finish seventh in 2017/18.

Stuttgart were relegated the next season, allowing Bayern Munich to recruit Pavard.

Stuttgart earned a tidy profit on the Frenchman after selling him for £31.5 million.

Pavard has progressed to become a key player for Bayern, acting as a right-back or center-half.

During his three years at the Allianz Arena, Bayern has won every Bundesliga championship possible, as well as one Champions League and one German cup.

Pavard got his France debut while at Stuttgart. He has been a regular for Les Blues since arriving at Bayern, earning 45 caps thus far.

Pavard ready for a Premier League move

Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann is making changes to his team. This has resulted in the addition of Matthijs de Ligt and Noussair Mazraoui to the defense.

While Pavard should continue to play frequently for Bayern Munich, these additions give rival clubs hope of acquiring the 26-year-old.

Manchester United are hoping to bring him to the Theatre of Dreams, according to the French publication L’Equipe.

They have already signed Tyrell Malacia and Lisandro Martinez this summer, but it seems that they want Pavard to enhance Erik ten Hag’s defense even more.

United will, however, face opposition from Premier League rivals Chelsea. According to L’Equipe, the Blues are interested in signing Pavard, and Bild writer Christian Falk has corroborated this.

Jules Kounde’s rejection and eventual departure to Barcelona have left the Blues reeling.

Chelsea’s three center-back targets are currently Leicester’s Wesley Fofana, PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe, and Bayern Munich’s Pavard.

Fofana will set you around £70 million, while Kimpembe is hoping to remain at PSG. This might lead to Chelsea making a bid for Pavard.

Bayern’s contract with the player remains for another two years, which means the German club may seek a high sum.

Chelsea were prepared to pay £55 million for Kounde and will very certainly have to spend the same amount on Pavard.

With Thomas Tuchel’s team entering the fight for the Frenchman, a transfer to United is seriously jeopardized. The Red Devils are unlikely to engage in a bidding battle. They must conserve money in order to meet Ajax’s exorbitant asking price for Antony.

At the start of the summer, Chelsea lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. As a result, they desperately need someone like Pavard.

As a result, the Blues are more likely than United to make a bid for him.
