Chelsea Have ‘Signalled An Interest’ In Signing 33M Rated Bundesliga Defender

Chelsea, Juventus and Atletico Madrid have all “signalled an interest” in Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard, according to Sky Sports Germany.

The arrival of Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax on a free transfer means Pavard’s position at right-back is under threat, while his game time could be limited further if Matthijs de Ligt also moves to the Bundesliga club.

A meeting between Bayern and Pavard’s representatives has already taken place to discuss the France international’s future and a sale has not been ruled out during the summer transfer window.

Sky claim that the 26-year-old’s “market value” is €39m (£33m) but it is not clear whether Bayern intend to hold out for a bigger sum, considering he only has two years remaining on his contract.

Pavard would be a perfect fit for Chelsea’s three-at-the-back system and, while the Blues have not made a formal approach for the defender yet, it could be something that is seriously worth considering.
