Reports suggest that Manchester United’s opening bid for Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard has been rejected by the German club.
United is eager to strengthen their defensive lineup for the upcoming Premier League season, especially with the potential departure of Harry Maguire to West Ham.
Pavard has been on the radar of United manager Erik ten Hag, and an official bid was made to bring him to Old Trafford.
However, Bayern Munich has turned down the offer.
Despite this, Pavard has already held talks with United and is reportedly open to the move.
Personal terms have been agreed upon, but the two clubs will need to negotiate a suitable fee before the transfer window closes.
Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel has indicated his desire to keep Pavard by starting him in a recent match, but the club may consider selling him to avoid losing him for free next summer.
Pavard, who joined Bayern in 2019 and has enjoyed significant success with the club, would provide competition at right-back for United alongside Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Diogo Dalot.
