Bayern Munich director confirms contract talk with Pavard

Stephen Oladehinde 22:23 - 01.05.2023

Bayern Munich are preparing to discuss a contract extension with French defender Benjamin Pavard amid interest from Barcelona.

As a result of a temporary falling out with former Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann, Pavard has had a difficult season. At that point, it appeared that the defender would be leaving the club, and he even lost his spot in the starting lineup.

But now, things have changed, and Pavard has once again taken centre stage at the Allianz Arena. And it appears that the French international may have a future under new manager Thomas Tuchel.

Bayern preparing contract offer for Pavard says Salihamidzic 

Hasan Salihamidzic, director of Bayern Munich, has confirmed the club's intention to begin contract negotiations with right-back Benjamin Pavard.

Speaking to Abendzeitung, “We will discuss with Benjamin Pavard for a new contract — we will see his feelings to make a decision. I’m happy he’s with us, he’s doing so well and the performances are very good.

The Frenchman’s contract expires in 2024 and Bayern are looking to keep their star player and push back any interest from other clubs.

Barcelona in for Pavard

Pavard has long been a subject of interest for Barcelona. There had been a little period of calm on the Pavard front, but recent reports indicate that they are still on the 27-year-old radar.

Barcelona has been keeping an eye on the 2018 World Cup winner and are hoping he won't extend his Bayern Munich contract so they can easily sign him.
