Inter Receive Potentially Decisive Benjamin Pavard Boost

Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard continues to flirt with Inter, hoping to force his move to Giuseppe Meazza. As spotted by Gazzetta dello Sport, the France international liked the Italians’ Instagram post presenting tonight’s game against Monza amid heated talks between the two clubs.

Inter published an Instagram post in a build-up to Saturday’s Serie A curtain-raising fixture against Monza. It’s hardly a coincidence Pavard hit the like button. It’s more likely he tried to send a message to Bayern that he wants out.

Thomas Tuchel received the note loud and clear. Pavard wasn’t in the starting lineup yesterday night as Bayern thumped Werder Bremen 4-0 on Harry Kane’s Bundesliga debut. But the Germans continue to play a hard bargain over the Frenchman’s sale.

Inter dispatched a €25 million bid for Pavard yesterday. Unfortunately, Bayern didn’t think twice before knocking it back. The perennial Bundesliga champions are holding out for a €35m asking price. Negotiations are still underway, with Simone Inzaghi’s side trying to find common ground.

Despite seeing their opening offer turned down, Inter remain hopeful of striking a deal at the halfway point. It looks like a sum of €30m could do the trick. Especially now that Pavard has shown his preference. The ex-Stuttgart defender seems poised to embark on a career in Serie A.
