Bayern reject Man United’s first bid for Pavard

Manchester United have had an opening bid for Benjamin Pavard rejected by Bayern Munich, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The transfer expert revealed that the Red Devils will not stop and will come back with an improved offer.

Fabrizio Romano reported: “Bayern rejected United’s first bid for Benjamin Pavard, as reported on Saturday”.

“But Man United remain there as Benji Pavard wants the transfer. He will not sign a new agreement with Bayern and insists on leaving”.

United are in talks to sign the French defender, who has been troubled by his position at the Bavarians for some time.

With Harry Maguire close to a move to West Ham, Erik ten Hag is looking to strengthen the defensive line and Pavard is one of the players on a four-man shortlist that also includes Crystal Palace’s Marc Guehi, Nice’s Jean-Clair Todibo and Edmond Tapsoba of Bayer Leverkusen.
