Juventus Plot Audacious Bid for Bayern Munich Defender

Juventus have taken the profile of wantaway Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard under consideration to replace Juan Cuadrado. According to Corriere dello Sport, Timothy Weah’s arrival from Lille won’t suffice, which brings the Frenchman into the equation.

Down to the final year of his contract at the Allianz Arena, Pavard is unlikely to pen a new deal. Bayern are open to selling the 27-year-old, which has put numerous European clubs on red alert. Barcelona and Manchester United have long been on his tail. But Juventus can spoil their plans.

Massimiliano Allegri’s men have yet to request information about the former Stuttgart right-back. His characteristics suit the Italian’s game plan. Since he is available on a cut-price deal, all pieces seem to have fallen into place for Juventus. It’s now up to Cristiano Giuntoli to put his magic to work.

Giuntoli’s priority is to lure Romelu Lukaku to Turin. The new Juventus sporting director is hellbent on taking the Chelsea bust to Juventus as his first major signing in charge of the record-time Serie A champions. He will accelerate talks to make the deal happen in the coming days.

Once that piece of business was settled, Juventus could launch a genuine attempt to end Pavard’s seven-year career in the Bundesliga. As a top-class defender affordable at a reasonable price, the France international ticks all the boxes for a type of player Allegri is keen to recruit. However, it’s not a simple deal by any stretch of the imagination.
