Bayern Munich have announced the signing of VfB Stuttgart defender and World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard on a five-year deal. The fee is believed to be €35 million.
Hasan Salihamidžić: “I can confirm that Benjamin Pavard will join us on a five-year deal from 1st July 2019. Pavard is a young player and a world champion. We’re delighted and very proud to have been able to secure the services of a player like him.”
Despite interest from numerous elite European clubs, Bayern Munich appeared to have lead the race to sign Pavard for some time, with a stay in Germany his favoured option.
