Benjamin Pavard became a household name in the summer of 2018 when he played a stellar role for the France National Team that went on to win the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The Frenchman himself earned a lot of accolades for his performances and his goal against Argentina was voted as the goal of the tournament.

It was surprising that Pavard continued to be a part of the Stuttgart team at the end of the summer transfer window because he had attracted a lot of attention from the top clubs in Europe.

The Frenchman has finally decided on his next move at the start of the winter transfer window and will join the Bundesliga Champions in the summer. Pavard has signed a 5-year contract with Bayern and will be joining them on 1st July 2019. The 22-year-old has appeared 72 times for Stuttgart since joining them from Lille ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Pavard has reportedly cost Bayern around €35m, but he will be a fine addition to a team that has struggled this season.
