27-year-old Barcelona target has started renewal talks with Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich had a rocky season so far, on and off the pitch as well. The Bavarian team already got eliminated from the German Cup from the hands of SC Freiburg and they are also out of the Champions League after being smashed by Manchester City 4-1 on aggregate, leaving just the Bundesliga as the only title remaining to be won.

Julian Nagelsmann’s tenure, after a sluggish start to life in Munich last season, seemed to get back on track for the new campaign, and despite the fact that they were standing in both cup competitions and marching close to the top in the league all over, Thomas Tuchel was suddenly appointed before the crucial Champions League clash against Manchester City.

Since then, the Bavarians fell out of both the domestic and the European cups as well, and it seemed obvious that the problem wasn’t Nagelsmann and the rash decision to change managers in the middle of the season proved to be a wrong decision made by the board of the club.

Nevertheless, beyond the field of play, the Bayern Munich leaders are already working on building the squad for the future, and they are actively tracking the market in search of players who can improve the current squad. The latest reports from SPORT indicate that they do not go through future purchases or sales, but that Bayern is finalizing a renewal in their defense.

Hasan Salihamidzic, the sports director of the Bavarian club slipped the possible contract renewal of French defender Benjamin Pavard, who sounded to leave the team “We will have talks and we will see how he feels. I am happy that he is with us,” he told the German newspaper ‘Abendzeitung München’.

Similarly, Salihamidzic added that Pavard “is having a very good second half of the season, showing a lot of confidence and doing a very good job overall.” The French defender has become an important cog in the defense, performing well both as a center-back and a right-back.

Now, according to the journalist Ekrem Konur, there are already conversations between Pavard’s camp and the German team to extend the player’s contract until 2028. In this way, it seems that the right-back, who had previously considered Barcelona as an option for a summer move, will stay in Germany and renew with the Bavarian outfit.
