Manchester United’s plan to sign a central defender has taken a hit with Harry Maguire’s decision to turn down the move to West Ham United.
The Red Devils are keen on signing Benjamin Pavard to reinforce the backline but must offload the England international first.
To take advantage of the current impasse, Inter Milan have jumped in the race with a bid to hire the services of the French international.
However, reports in the media indicate that Pavard is ready to agree a move to Man Utd to play under the guidance of Erik ten Hag despite the offer from Italy.
According to French outlet, L’Equipe, the Dutch manager has promised the 27-year-old he will be regular starter at Old Trafford and therefore, he wants to join.
The Nerazzurri and the PL giants are pushing to get the signing done and Pavard knows that the time is running out.
As per German source, Bild, Inter have moved in with an offer worth 25 million euros but the former Stuttgart defender wishes to move to Manchester United
The renowned media outlet claim Bayern Munich want at least 35-40 million euros (£30m-£34m) for the Les Bleus star. On the other hand, the Serie A giants, who reached the final of the Champions League last term, are not willing to raise their offer.
For now, Man Utd remain stuck because of unwanted Harry Maguire. Will they be able to sell him this summer to sign Benjamin Pavard? Only time will tell.
