Bayern land WC winner Pavard
Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has confirmed the club have signed France international Benjamin Pavard, who will join the Bavarians at the end of the season.
The 22-year-old has made great progress at Stuttgart and rose to prominence last summer as he helped Les Bleus win the World Cup in Russia.
Having agreed a five-year deal at the Allianz Arena, Salihamidzic is delighted to have Pavard heading to Bayern this summer.
“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 will add much-needed quality and versatility to the Bayern defence, as the youngster can play at both centre-back and right-back.
The reigning Bundesliga champions are currently in away from Germany in Doha at a warm-weather training camp during a winter break and return to action on 18th January at Hoffenheim.
Bayern are 1/40 to win the Bundesliga title this season, while frontrunners Borussia Dortmund are 16/1 to claim the German crown.
