Bayern Munich confirm signing of Benjamin Pavard

Pavard won the World Cup with France

However, Manchester United - who were one of the clubs rumoured to be an interested party in picking up Pavard (The Sun) - will now have to cross another name off their prospective defensive recruitment list, after Stuttgart's Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich pounced to pick up Pavard.

The Bundesliga club's sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic announced the news on Wednesday, with Bayern having activated the Stuttgart centre-half's €35 million (£31m/$40m) release clause.

Pavard's status skyrocketed last summer when the centre-back scored the goal of the World Cup with a stunning net-busting strike in a 4-3 last-16 win over Argentina that set France on their way to the Russian Federation 2018 title.

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.

France and Stuttgart full-back Benjamin Pavard will join Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Pavard played in six of France's seven games at the World Cup finals, only missing their final group game against Denmark, and he scored his first global goal in the last-16 clash with Argentina.

Pavard is Bayern's first signing for the 2019-2020 season.

Bayern are in Doha at a winter training camp during a winter break and return to action on 18 January at Hoffenheim.
