Inter Getting Increasingly Closer to Onboarding Pavard

Inter are plotting to go all the way in their pursuit of Benjamin Pavard. They have set a sizeable budget to convince Bayern Munich. Instead, the player gladly accepted the destination. He’s pushing to join.

According to Alfredo Pedullà, the Nerazzurri are willing to spend up to €30M including add-ons. The Bavarians might cave after finding a replacement because the player wants out. Moreover, he has just a year on his contract. They might lose him for nothing in 2024.

Intermediary Giovanni Branchini dished on the deal to Radio Sportiva.

“Pavard is very close to Inter. The only thing missing is for Bayern to identity not necessarily a substitute, but an athlete that could pair up with Noussair Mazraoui at right-back. If they did, the operation with the Nerazzurri will get concluded by the end of the window. I don’t think there’s any gap between the two clubs. They are just waiting for such a solution.”

Our Take on Inter and Pavard

One could argue that they could perhaps play the leverage game and not tender that much if they are confident they could get him for free. However, they have already been burned in similar situations in the past. For instance, they believed Manuel Akanji would join them on a Bosman move, but Manchester City swooped in late in the window.
