FC Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard has agreed personal terms with Manchester United
Ever since the news of West Ham United agreeing a deal with Manchester United for Harry Maguire came out, there have been rumours circulating of United looking at the centre-back market for replacements.
Earlier, OGC Nice’s Jean-Claire Todibo was the name being mentioned a lot but recent days have seen Pavard being strongly linked with United with the player frustrated in Germany and keen to make the switch to Old Trafford.
As a result, he has a verbal agreement with United over personal terms with all that is left is for the clubs to agree to a deal, although that does feel like a big stumbling block at the minute.
Bayern were heavily interested in Manchester City defender Kyle Walker and while for a moment it seemed that the player would move to Germany, the move has now fallen out and he would be staying in England for the foreseeable future.
Now, this has had a direct impact on Pavard’s future at the club with Bayern now reluctant to reduce their squad size for the upcoming season.
Pavard, on the other hand, is growing increasingly frustrated with how Bayern are handling things and wants his move away from the club finalised as soon as possible. The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has been with them since 2019 and has one year left on his contract at the Allianz Arena (Transfermarkt).
United’s narrow 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers would have made Erik Ten Hag do some thinking as it was a lacklustre performance and the only good thing to come out was the three points.

Clearly, we need more physical presence in the team, something which Pavard can provide and maybe the game yesterday could be the catalyst for United launching a serious move for France International.
