Man Utd transfer boost with France’s Benjamin Pavard ‘to snub new Bayern Munich deal’ following Red Devils enquiry

BENJAMIN PAVARD has handed Manchester United a transfer boost as he will reportedly snub a new contract at Bayern Munich.

Pavard, 26, is contracted with the German champions until 2024.

However, Sport Bild report Pavard will reject a new contract following an enquiry from Man Utd in the summer.

The Frenchman is understood to be after a fresh challenge after winning all he can with Bayern.

In November, he told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I’ve won everything with Bayern. I’m ready to evaluate new and interesting projects.”

Pavard’s market value currently stands at £30million as per transfermarkt.

Erik ten Hag is understood to have wanted to sign the former Stuttgart star, who can play right-back or centre-back.

But no bid ever came in from the Red Devils, with Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro brought in to bolster the team’s spine instead.

Should United make a move for him again, they are likely to face competition from both AC Milan and Barcelona.

A particular interest already exists for Milan after Pavard admitted he would like to play with compatriot Olivier Giroud.

HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON THE WORLD CUP

Pavard started the first game of France‘s World Cup campaign, but has not featured since being displaced by Jules Kounde at right-back – with team-mates split over the decision.

France are in action later today in the World Cup semi-final against Morocco.
