Bayern Munich to sign Benjamin Pavard from Stuttgart at end of season

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 22-year-old Stuttgart starlet has made 18 appearances for the France national team, with that strike in the "argy-bargy" his single goal for country.

With the transfer window now in full swing, Bayern Munich have confirmed the signing of a French 2018 FIFA World Cup victor, who will join them by the end of the 2018/19 season. "We're glad and proud to have gained such a player for FC Bayern", said Salihamidzic, as per The Bundesliga.

Anyway, it would be entirely remiss of us to mention Pavard and not include mention of the achingly lovely goal he scored at the World Cup - later voted the goal of the tournament...

Following an outstanding debut season in Germany's upper tier, Pavard has struggled this term, just like Stuttgart.
