Bayern Munich news: Benjamin Pavard has revealed that he questioned himself whether he should stay at the German side or leave them during the 2022 summer transfer window.
Pavard was linked with a move away from Bayern Munich in the recently closed summer transfer window. Man Utd was linked with the France international but a move never happened.
Pavard has been playing for Bayern Munich since the 2019/20 season. The 26-year-old has so far made 127 appearances for Bayern Munich and has scored seven goals.
The French right-back joined Bayern Munich on a five-year contract in 2019. He still has two years left on that deal with the Bundesliga side.
Bayern Munich news: Benjamin Pavard opens up on transfer speculation
Pavard has now opened about the transfer speculation that linked him with an exit from Bayern Munich in the recent summer transfer window.
The Bayern Munich defender admitted that he questioned himself whether he should stay at the German side or seek a move away from the club.
Pavard also revealed he had calls from different clubs with his agent. However, he chose to stay at Bayern Munich after talks with the club manager. Julian Nagelsmann convinced Pavard that he was in his plans and was important for the club, according the defender himself.
“I questioned myself. I had calls from different clubs with my agent. Afterwards, I had the Bayern coach with whom we spoke and with whom we have a good relationship. He made me understand that I was in his plans, that I was important for the team,” Pavard told Telefoot.
Pavard also opened the door for a move away from Bayern Munich in the future. He added: “Maybe one day I will go to one of these clubs, you never know what the future holds. I’m still a year at Bayern Munich. Afterwards, we have time to project ourselves.”
Meanwhile, Bayern have not had a great start to the 22/23 season. They have only won three of their first seven games in the Bundesliga this season. Bayern shared points in three matches, while losing one game.
The defending league champions currently languish at fifth in the points table with 12 points from seven matches. They are five points behind league leaders Union Berlin.
Bayern, though, have secured victories in the two Champions League games they have so far played this season. Bayern registered 2-0 wins in both games, defeating Inter Milan and Barcelona.
