Pavard Hints at Interest in Surprising Move to Milan

Benjamin Pavard discussed the upcoming World Cup, where France will attempt to repeat, and alluded to potentially transferring to Italy, more precisely to Milan, in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I would have never imagined to win it. It was my boyhood dream. Playing 30 seconds would have been enough to me. Instead, I was a regular starter and scored a great goal. But I stayed true to myself. Glory and money are secondary. I play to win and improve. Everybody thinks of me as a fullback now, but I’m a central defender. I don’t like to attack too much. But everything depends on the scheme and the coach. It’ll be a nice World Cup, with some surprises.”

The 26-year-old named his models.

“Lillian Thuram was similar to me in terms of position. I like Thiago Silva, who’s still a top player despite his age. I’ve always admired Alessandro Nesta and Giorgio Chiellini and still watch their YouTube clips.”

Pavard was quizzed about potentially moving to the Peninsula and voiced his affinity for Milan.

“I’ve played in Germany for seven years at this point. I’ve won everything with Bayern Munich. I’m open to evaluate interesting projects, but as a center-back. Olivier Giroud always says that Italy lives for football and recounted the magic of the Derby and the great celebrations by the fans for the Scudetto. I’d like to play with him since we are great friends. We’ll see.”

“Serie A is very interesting because it is wide open. Napoli and the Rossoneri are dueling this year. Inter was tough to face in Champions League. Juventus are rebuilding but they will soon return to their usual levels.”
