Falk's post on his Twitter account also states that United are more likely to sign Pavard than Chelsea, as the Blues are targeting the arrival of fellow French defender Jules Koundé from Sevilla.
At Bayern Munich since 2019, Pavard is 26 years old and was revealed at Lille. Before wearing the shirt of the Bavarian club, the defender had a spell at Stuttgart between 2016 and 2019, before being signed by Bayern for 35 million euros.
Pavard was world champion with the French national team in 2018. As a right-back, he scored one of the most beautiful goals of the World Cup against Argentina in the round of 16, in a game won by the French 4-3.
