World Cup victor Pavard to join Bayern Munich from July 1

09 January 2019

"He's a really good player, can play on many positions".

Victor Lindelof and Phil Jones have performed admirably in United's recent resurgence, but the latter still sends moderate shivers down spines on a weekly glance at the team sheet.

Pavard, who was one of the shooting stars at the 2018 FIFA World after starting six of France's seven games and scoring the Goal of the Tournament, will join the club on a five-year deal.

"I can announce that we managed to get the services of Benjamin Pavard from July 1, 2019", Salihamidzic told reporters during a Bayern training camp in Qatar, without giving any financial details of the transfer. "We're glad and proud to have gained such a player for FC Bayern", said Salihamidzic, as per The Bundesliga.

Pavard joined Stuttgart from Lille in 2016 and has been used as a centre-back and right-back by both club and country.

"He signed a five-year contract."
He has qualities that fit into our game.

He has featured 14 times for a struggling Stuttgart this season, with the club now 16th in the Bundesliga table. A rejuvenated Borussia Dortmund - with England worldwide Jadon Sancho playing a starring role - went into the winter break with a six-point lead after their 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach prior to Christmas.
