Benjamin Pavard was part of the World Cup winning squad with France and has reportedly signed a five-year deal with the hugely successful Bayern Munich squad.
Speaking in detail about the move, the club has released the following statement.
“We’ve signed Benjamin Pavard for 1 July 2019. He’s put pen to paper on a five-year contract. He’s a young player and a world champion. We’re very glad and proud to have gained such a player for FC Bayern,” Salihamidzic said.
Pavard had been linked with a move to a number of European giants, but the Bavarians have managed to prise the defender ahead of the rest.
