Benjamin Pavard's statement that he could imagine moving away from Bayern Munich recently caused a stir. Internally, everyone agrees: the Frenchman can and should be sold.
The public statements as to why you shouldn't "discover a new country, a new culture" and leave Bavaria accordingly have recently brought Benjamin Pavard into focus.
The defender had made it clear to L'Equipe that he was far from completely satisfied in Munich. For example, the lack of an opportunity for him to switch between the full-back and central-back position causes him some frustration. The clear starting position: The Frenchman has set the course for a change.
According to Sky, this is also the current internal status on Säbener Straße. It remains the case: If there is a reasonable offer for him next summer, he will be sold. Precisely because of his contract, which expires in 2024, he needs early certainty about his future.
In addition, one should be of the opinion internally that Pavard's statements were "unnecessary". It is not surprising that those responsible felt a little offended. After all, FCB recently rode a wave of success in which such interviews are rarely the case.
