A world champion from the latest Vintage, 2018, the French, have also been in Corentin Tolisso in the squad. But one can be two and the FC Bayern has now confirmed: Benjamin Pavard, it changes to the next season, to Munich. Since the defender has been traded since the summer, the VfB Stuttgart fought back but still against the Transfer, not the unexpected.

“He has signed a five-year contract,” announced sporting Director Hasan Salihamidzic in the training camp in Qatar. “He is a young player who is world champion. We are very glad and proud that we were able to attract such a player.“ The 22-year-old defender is yet to 2021 in Stuttgart, Germany under contract, but there is an exit clause of 35 million euros, which makes the Transfer for Bayern pleasant. And, moreover, much cheaper than a potential obligation on the part of Lucas Hernandez, the defence colleagues, Pavard in the “Équipe Tricolore”, the opt-out clause at Atletico Madrid on € 80 million.

as well as Hernandez, who grew up in Spain, Pavard, shortly after his 20. Birthday of his boyhood club Lille OSC moved to the then second-division club VfB Stuttgart, in the home only by the world Cup victory really for the term. Mainly due to his fantastic goal in the 2:2 4:3-eighth final victory against Argentina, a perfect delivery, but he ended the single, nine-minute delay of the French in the tournament and thus the most difficult Situation of the entire world Cup Mission. happened

The Bavaria, the young defender was noticed already in the promotion season with VfB, at the latest, but then, as the VfB was in the last Bundesliga season, the second-best defense, the strongest back-round team.

Until the world Cup victory it was for Pavard always upward. However, in the current time it happened to him before many others in the return to everyday life after a lavish world Cup summer. The crash of the VfB in the relegation region, he accompanied with weak benefits. In the end, he was pursued by bad luck. 14. Round, he was in the futile attempt to prevent the mönchengladbach 1:0, in the Sprint of a muscle fiber tear in the thigh, but played on until just before the end in a defensive attempt was a failure, step everything worse own goal for 3:0, a torn thigh muscle. While the gentlemen are preparing currently, in the South of Spain on the return lap, you need Pavard home rehab complete Training.

At the world Cup he was a regular force on the right side of the French, which makes him at Bayern to a replacement Option for Joshua Kimmich. Like Hernandez, who played in the back on the left, he is, however, especially as an interior defender can be used, its stem position in Stuttgart.
