Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard has been rumored to be looking for a new club and his latest quotes indicate that, indeed, a transfer is a legitimate possibility.
“There have been no concrete talks (about a contract). For now, I’m focused on the World Cup, on being the best I can be at a very big club, one of the best in the world. I have immense respect for Bayern, I learned there what it takes to play at a very high level and it’s an honor to wear the shirt,” Pavard told L’Equipe (as captured by @iMiaSanMia). “I have been in Germany for seven years, I have won everything with the club. I’m not against discovering a new project. Maybe now is the time. Why not discover a new country, a new culture? But the sporting project must be interesting.”
Things do not exactly sound great for Bayern Munich and Pavard working something out. It’s not a foregone conclusion that Pavard will leave, but this is pretty ominous for his future.
