Benjamin Pavard teased Manchester United fans with a simple comment under an Instagram post following his fellow countryman’s goal on Monday night. Fabrizio Romano reported on the situation stating the player is currently “pushing Bayern to make the deal happen.”
Manchester United Stalling Over Frenchman
The French defender is making it very apparent on his current ambitions with public comments on social media, expressing admiration not only for his national teammate Raphael Varane but also United. It is understood that Inter Milan are now monitoring Pavard, Romano stated a “proposal expected soon to open talks”. The right-back is intending on not signing a new deal with the German champions.
Interestingly, The Red Devils are stalling the move now due to the Harry Maguire situation, according to the Italian Journalist. it seems as though the French International has a plethora of options and Arsenal could potentially see him as a Jurrien Timber replacement, following the Dutchman damaging his ACL.
Pavard, a serial winner in Germany, joined Bayern from Stuttgart back in 2019 for £30 million. He’s capable of playing right centre-back as well as right-back, and looked most likely to be replacing Harry Maguire who was set for a move out of the northwest. In a turn of events Romano reported Maguire would remain at United, “Harry remains settled at United, loves the club and believes he will get plenty of opportunities to play”.
With the Englishman remaining in Manchester, Pavard may have to look elsewhere for his next challenge.
