Chelsea and Manchester United are both interested in signing Bayern Munich full-back Benjamin Pavard, although Juventus and Atletico Madrid are also interested.
The 26-year-old defender is reportedly looking for a new opportunity away from Bayern Munich, partly because he prefers to play at center-back but has been relegated to right-back for the Bavarians.
The French defender played 36 games in all competitions last season, but with the arrivals of Ajax right-back Noussair Mazraoui and Serie A giant Matthijs de Ligt, Juventus have raised the possibility that he will have fewer chances in both positions.
According to the French publication L’Equipe, the quartet of the Red Devils and Blues are all interested in capitalizing on the situation; however, the Premier League teams may face challenges in the pursuit.
The West London giants have already signed center-back Kalidou Koulibaly and are still interested in long-term target Jules Kounde, as well as Presnal Kimpembe.
Manchester United have already agreed on a deal for Lisandro Martinez, giving them Argentine options alongside Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, and Raphael Varane.
