Inter Announce to Have Signed Pavard from Bayern Munich

Benjamin Pavard has completed his long-gestating transfer to Inter, as Bayern Munich finally greenlighted his departure after resisting his desire to move to Serie A. They had their backs against the wall since he had just one year on his contract and was ready to wait to join the Nerazzurri on a Bosman transfer.

Per SportMediaset, La Beneamata pulled off the richest acquisition of their summer. They will shell out €30M, plus €2M add-ons. Moreover, the center-back has inked a five-year contract and will earn €5M wages. He’ll be among the highest-paid players on the squad right away.

Inter capitalize on a lengthy chase, as they already tried to add Pavard in January when Milan Skriniar seemed headed to PSG. They continued to track him in the ensuing months. After probing a pricey offensive purchase in previous weeks, they decided to invest to bolster their defense, but they had to wait for Bayern Munich to nail down a replacement.

The 27-year-old departs after 4 seasons, 163 appearances, 12 goals, 12 assists, and 10 trophies, including one Champions League.

Our Take on Inter and Pavard

While they substituted André Onana for cheap, the money coming from his sale is ultimately staying in the back. It’s a great get. Only time will tell whether they should have sprinkled in more cash to shore up their attack instead.
