Inter Still Confident Despite Delay in Pavard Purchase

Inter reached an agreement with Bayern Munich and Benjamin Pavard a couple of days ago, but the player has yet to receive the go-ahead from his side to travel to Milan. The Bavarians want to purchase a replacement first.

Per Alfredo Pedullà, Thomas Tuchel has so far turned down every option he’s been suggested. The Nerazzurri believe the deal will go through, but they won’t wait until very late as they wish to add a defender before deadline day.

If Pavard didn’t join Inter this summer, Bayern Munich would miss out on €30M, plus €2M add-ons. The World Cup champion has struck a deal with the Serie A giants. If he doesn’t switch teams shortly, he’ll transfer to Italy either at a lower price in January or in a Bosman move in 2024.

La Beneamata has prepared a pair of fallbacks in case of a negative turn of events: Tottenham’s Japhet Tanganga and Perr Schuurs. According to DAZN’s Orazio Accomando, they laid the legwork to sign the Torino star before coming to terms for the Frenchman. His price tag is similar.

Our Take on Inter and Pavard

It would be a very tough look for the Nerazzurri if another transfer collapsed at the 11th hour, even though mainly to no fault of their own, as in Lazar Samardzic’s case. If they really have him in the bag for the future, they won’t splurge on another center-back.
