Manchester United spent more than £200 million on players to sign for the new project of Dutch manager Erik ten Hag, the main reason being to reinforce vulnerable areas of the team that failed to qualify for the Champions League this season.

It was an offer rejected by Bayern Munich's French defender Benjamin Pavard, in addition to the interest of the Red Devils, in the same conversation were teams like Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Juventus. Pavard remains tied to the German club until 2024.

According to French media outlet Téléfoot, Pavard said he received several calls with his agent from the aforementioned clubs. But he decided to stay after Bayern trainer Julian Nagelsmann insisted he should stay because he was a player who was in the team's plans.

He also pointed out that he does not rule out going to any of those clubs in the future, as the player says he is on time at 26 years of age, and is happy in the dressing room of the Germans, as he even claimed to have a very good relationship with the coach of the Bavarian team.

Benjamin Pavard was close to joining Man Utd for £30m, but a move to sign him next summer is a possibility

Man Utd have a weakness at right-back, between Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka they have not been able to stand out, although the Portuguese is more active, and has shown that he is ready to compete with any player they sign in his position, while Wan-Bissaka has one foot out of the club. Benjamin Pavard can play at centre-back and full-back, which is why he is such a sought-after player.
