As per today’s version of Corriere dello Sport taking advantage of the competition for the Frenchman, Bayern Munich have raised the asking price.

The Rome based news outlet have mentioned that initially, the Bavarians were asking for a fee of 35 million euros. Now, they are demanding a price of 40 million euros (£34.2m) for the Les Bleus defender.

It is reported that Man Utd have made Bayern aware they are ready to agree the £34.2m fee required to secure the signing of Pavard

However, first, they need to sort out the future of Harry Maguire. CdS claim the Red Devils feel they can eventually persuade the England international to leave this summer.

Speaking on the defender’s future, Erik ten Hag stated:

“I don’t know the situation, I just know that Harry is one of our players and I am happy that he is here.”

The famous media outlet state Inter Milan cannot match the figure of £34.2m that Man Utd are ready to offer but they have hope due to the ongoing Maguire saga and because time is running out in the transfer window.

Nevertheless, Bayern are resigned to losing Pavard as the World Cup winning player made it evident he wants to leave this summer.
