FC Bayern: Pavard is not allowed to leave

Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus Turin is currently considered a desired transfer from FC Bayern. With the young Dutchman, Munich want to raise their central defense to a new level in order to attack in the Champions League. However, signing the Dutchman would also have a direct impact on the current squad: Benjamin Pavard and Dayot Upamecano in particular.

Bayern Munich’s defense could be headed by a new man next season: Matthijs de Ligt. According to information from the “kicker”, the record champions’ sporting management is already “cautiously” planning with the Dutchman, who the Munich team definitely want to sign after a first transfer attempt three years ago failed.

As much as de Ligt is striving for a move to Säbener Straße according to media reports, Juve and FC Bayern are still one way away from an agreement. The question of transfer has not yet been clarified. As the “Gazetta dello Sport” reporter Alfredo Pedullà recently reported, the Bundesliga club is ready to put 80 million euros plus bonus payments for De Ligt on the table, other sources do not assume that Munich will pay that much money for the defender in take the hand exit open.

Either way: If de Ligt ends up moving to Munich, this has consequences for some players in the Bayern squad. Most recently, Benjamin Pavard was seen as the exit candidate. The Frenchman, who has been increasingly active as a right-back in recent years and would have liked to move into the middle, is said to have toyed with the idea of ​​leaving because De Ligt could now fill his desired position.

What’s next for Upamecano at Bayern?

But according to “kicker”, the coaching team around head coach Julian Nagelsmann definitely wants to keep him. It is said that plans are being made with the French national player.



Dayot Upamecano might be a little different. It could be “tight” for him, the journal continues.

The 23-year-old, who only moved to Munich last summer but found it difficult to continue the performances that were used to from RB Leipzig, could mutate into a candidate for departure.

According to “kicker”, there is still no concrete farewell scenario from the club’s side. However, the French centre-back, who cost €42.5m and has been given a contract until 2026, is likely to face difficulties if De Ligt’s transfer goes through.
