Inter Milan are on the verge of completing one of the most notable signings in Italy this summer with the impending arrival of Benjamin Pavard. The Nerazzurri have reached an agreement in principle with FC Bayern Munich to secure the talented French defender’s services. Although details have yet to be worked out, the operation marks a significant change for the Milan team.
The transfer operation between Inter Milan and Bayern Munich is progressing steadily. Although the cost of the transfer is expected to be around €30m, with two million to be added, the final step in completing the signing still hinges on a crucial part at Bayern Munich: bringing in a substitute for Pavard in Bayern’s rear .
Inter Milan complete Benjamin Pavard’s signing
Tuesday marked the day when the agreement would be finalized. However, the final green light depends on Bayern Munich’s move. The German club are working to find a suitable replacement for Pavard before approving his departure. Among the names to consider as a potential replacement is Feyenoord defender Lutsharel Geertruida.
Although the final deal is yet to be confirmed, there is cautious optimism in Milan. The transfer is expected to go through on Wednesday, allowing Benjamin Pavard to undergo a medical on Thursday and sign a five-year deal at Inter Milan.
Inter manager Inzaghi hopes to use Pavard in the next game against Cagliari, scheduled for Monday. The signing of the France centre-back, replacing Milan Skriniar, is expected to be a key reinforcement for the team’s defence. Pavard will bring the physical strength and international experience Inter have been looking for to strengthen their defensive line next season.
