Official: Napoli miss out on Pavard

Napoli have missed out on Benjamin Pavard as Bayern Munich confirm the France defender will join them from Stuttgart this summer.

Pavard has been linked with Napoli in recent weeks but despite their reported interest in the 22-year-old, Joseph Mohan made it clear on Monday that the Partenopei were not his priority.

That was followed by Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic telling reporters 48 hours later: “I can confirm Benjamin Pavard will join us on a five-year deal from July 1, 2019.”

Capable of playing at right-back or in central defence, Pavard began his career at Lille and helped France win the 2018 World Cup.
