Tweets: Bayern Munich sign Benjamin Pavard sparking angry reaction from some Man Utd fans

France World Cup-winner Benjamin Pavard will join Bayern Munich on a five-year deal from next season, according to the Bavarian club’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic.

The 22-year-old impressed at the World Cup last summer, scoring the best goal of the tournament against Argentina in the last 16, and has now earned a move to the German champions.

After watching him perform at the World Cup which he’d later go on to win, we suggested that Pavard was the right-back United should be targeting. Sadly we’ve lost out without any suggestions the club were ever interested in bringing the Frenchman to Old Trafford.

According to The Guardian, the VfB Stuttgart defender will join the Bundesliga’s biggest club for €35 million.

“I can announce that we managed to get the services of Benjamin Pavard from 1 July 2019,” Salihamidzic said, as per BBC Sport.

Pavard would have been a good signing for United considering Diogo Dalot is still raw, Ashley Young is not a right-back and Antonio Valencia’s best days are behind him. The French defender is also versatile enough to do a job at centre-back when called upon.
