According to a report from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan have agreed to terms on defender Benjamin Pavard.

Per Romano, Inter Milan has put together a package that includes €30 million, plus €2 million to €3 million in add-ons. The only hold up in the move going final is that Bayern Munich wants to secure a replacement for Pavard before making it go official.

That task could be a little harder than the Bavarians would like:

Pavard’s ability to play capably at both center-back and right-back makes him a very difficult player to replace on the roster. There are not many available players, who can fill such a void adequately.

As for Pavard’s situation, it remains to be seen where Inter Milan will play him, but it can be assumed that there was a lengthy discussion about the Frenchman’s desire to play center-back. If Inter Milan was open to that, we can assume it played a major role in things progressing so quickly in recent days.
