Bayern Munich confirm €35m deal for World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard

The 22-year-old starred for France at the World Cup finals in the summer, playing at right-back for Didier Deschamps' side as they triumphed in Russian Federation.

Bayern Munich have agreed a deal to sign French World Cup victor Benjamin Pavard from Stuttgart this summer.

Salihamidzic announced the deal at Bayern's training camp in Doha, with Pavard's contract to start in the summer.

Pavard helped his country win the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation and scored goal of the tournament, against Argentina.

Cleveland Browns: Freddie Kitchens potential coordinators
This was a solid hire from an organization that was laughed at in the past for some of their coaching decisions. Under Kitchens , who took over after the firing of former coordinator Todd Haley, Cleveland was reinvigorated.

Salihamidzic revealed to reporters: "I can confirm that Benjamin Pavard will join us on a five-year deal from 1st July 2019. He can adapt to our style of play and we are following him", he said.

"He has signed a five-year deal".

Bayern resume the Bundesliga season with an away trip to Hoffenheim on January 18, while Pavard's current side Stuttgart, who are 16th in the table, host Mainz on January 19 as they aim to move further away from the relegation spots.

Salihamidzic also confirmed Bayern's interest in Chelsea teenage forward Callum Hudson-Odoi, as they look to boost their frontline following the expected departure of veteran wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery at the end of the season.
