FC Bayern could sign Cancelo in the summer – Pavard wants to leave in the summer

In the summer, Bayern could sign the right-back on a permanent basis, but the purchase option is apparently around 70 million euros.

That's why FCB is apparently planning to sell another defender.

Bayern do not have much financial leeway compared to other top clubs in Europe, which is why those responsible are forced to find creative solutions.

The reported 70 million euros that would be due for Cancelo after the loan expires are a challenge for the Bundesliga leader.

It was only last summer that Munich paid 67 million euros for the transfer of Matthijs de Ligt.



reports, Benjamin Pavard's imminent farewell could bring FC Bayern plenty of income in the coming transfer period.

The Frenchman, who probably shouldn't see his future in Munich anyway, has been flirting with a move abroad for some time and has even spoken publicly about a transfer.

The name of the 2018 world champion also circulated on Deadline Day, but there was no change.

FC Bayern: Inter Milan knocked on Benjamin Pavard's door on Deadline Day

According to media reports, Inter Milan are said to have made intensive efforts to acquire the 26-year-old, as central defender Milan Skrinar was about to move to Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the Slovak's transfer fell through due to a lack of confirmation of a successor, which is why Skrinar is likely to leave Inter in the summer for free.

Apparently Pavard was offered a loan with an option to buy, but Bayern are said to have rejected this.

The Nerazzurri are said to be still looking into Pavard's signing, even if it could be a little pricey.

Because according to


information, the buyer of the French national player would have to shell out around 30 million euros to buy the defensive man from his contract, which is valid until the summer of 2024.

Thus, a significant part of the possible Cancelo fee would already be covered.

Benjamin Pavard probably contacted star consultant Zahavi – he helped Lewandowski and Alaba to change

Pavard, unhappy with his role at right-back, wants to leave Bayern after this season.

However, it is doubtful that Inter Milan will get the player.

Because in addition to the Nerrazzuri, FC Barcelona is also interested in the former Stuttgart player, and the actor himself seems to see himself more in blue and red than in black and blue.



also reports, Pavard has already made provisions for a possible transfer to Barcelona and contacted the notorious star advisor Pinhas Zahavi.

The Israeli players' agent, who maintains a friendly relationship with Barcelona President Joan Laporta, had already arranged for the departures of David Alaba and Robert Lewandowski to Spain.

However, it is still unclear whether the cash-strapped Catalans can raise the necessary 30 million euros.
