Benjamin Pavard sends Bayern Munich transfer warning

Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has warned Benjamin Pavard that public pressure over future transfers will not work against the Bundesliga.

Pavard, whose contract expires in 2024, has yet to agree to an extension to his current deal and has publicly admitted on more than one occasion that he is open to listening to offers from elsewhere. AC Milan’s name has also been dropped from Serie A. Possible landing place.

However, Kahn has now warned Pavard that talking publicly about his future is no way to resolve his situation.

“One cannot start one’s departure with statements, especially not in public,” Kahn told Sky Germany. “We will not allow that.

“Benjamin knows what he has in Bayern. We also know what we have in him. We can classify and manage the players’ emotions, which sometimes go up and down.”

A problem for Pavard is the position he plays in on the pitch. He recently admitted that he would only consider offers as a central defender, despite the majority of his Bayern career being spent as a right-back.

Indeed, Pavard made his name as a central defender in Stuttgart, but he has rarely been used in Munich. Of his 140 appearances for the club, only 31 have come as a centre-back.

He finished the first half of the Bundesliga season in a starring role, although this was largely due to an injury to Matthijs de Ligt.
