Bayern Confirm €35m Deal For World Cup Winner Pavard

Bayern Munich have confirmed 2018 FIFA World Cup victor Benjamin Pavard will join the club at the end of the Bundesliga season in a deal worth €35m.

Salihamidzic announced the deal at Bayern's training camp in Doha, with Pavard's contract to start in the summer.

Pavard, 22, has been linked with Bundesliga champions Bayern since winning the World Cup with France last summer and will complete a move in July after a €35 million release clause was triggered.

Pavard impressed as Didier Deschamps' side claimed a second world title in Russian Federation past year.

Pavard scored a fantastic goal for France against Argentina in the round of 16 encounter which was voted as the best goal of the tournament.

Capable of playing at right-back or in central defence, Pavard began his career at Lille and helped France win the 2018 World Cup.

"He is a very interesting player whom we really want to sign", Salihamidzic added of the 18-year-old.

Bayern are now on their annual winter training camp in Doha as they prepare for the second half of the Bundesliga campaign.

Following an outstanding debut season in Germany's upper tier, Pavard has struggled this term, just like Stuttgart.

Salihamidzic also confirmed Bayern Munich's interest in Chelsea's starlet, Callum Hudson-Odoi.
