Manchester United have offered Bundesliga star Benjamin Pavard
Bayern Munich have reportedly offered 26-year-old defender Benjamin Pavard to Manchester United.
According to German news outlet Sport1, the Bundesliga champions offered Pavard to United after signing Matthijs de Ligt as defensive partner for Luca Hernandez, meaning there is little room in the center for the Frenchman.
Although the versatile defender can and has played as a right-back over the years, the France international is considering his long-term future as a centre-back.
Red Devil boss Erik ten Hag has already made two defensive signings this window after agreeing deals for Ajax’s Lisandro Martinez and Feyenoord’s Tyrell Malacia.
It looks like the Dutchman isn’t done building up his defense yet as he looks to challenge Portugal international Diogo Dalot.
Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that the 20-time league winners are keen to sign Denzal Dumfries from Inter Milan if they can offload Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Pavard could be a great signing for United, with the versatile defender able to play anywhere along the back line, providing ten Hag flexibility, especially with the newly signed centre-back’s ability to play as a midfielder of defensive terrain.
