Bayern Munich agrees deal for Pavard

Bayern Munich agrees five-year deal for World Cup-winning defender

The Frenchman will join the defending Bundesliga champion in the summer, once the current campaign ends.

Bayern Munich has taken a huge step forward in their attempt to bolster their defense, as they have confirmed a deal for Benjamin Pavard. The Bundesliga giant made this announcement, revealing that the Frenchman will be joining them but only in the summer, once the current campaign ends.

Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic lifted the lid on this agreement from the club's training ground in Doha. He stated that Pavard has put pen to paper on a five-year deal for a reported $40M transfer fee.

Die Roten's reasons for signing the World Cup winner are obvious. The Stuttgart man impressed in Deschamps' back-four en route to the title while also scoring the Goal of the Tournament against Argentina in the round of 16.

Several clubs were interested in the defender but he opted to stay with his Bundesliga employers. However, Stuttgart is in the midst of a race to avoid relegation as they sit in the 16th spot.

Kovac's side has long been on the lookout for defenders and had been linked with another World Cup winner: Lucas Hernandez. Recent reports, however, claim that the Atletico Madrid man will remain in La Liga.
