Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard was linked with a move to the Premier League during the summer transfer window, with Chelsea and Manchester United rumoured to be interested in the France international.

Pavard who is remembered for his goal for France in the 2018 World Cup Round of 16 clash against Argentina, has revealed that he was convinced to remain at Bayern by Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann.

The World Cup winning defender also admitted that he may consider a move to the Premier League in the near future.

“I questioned myself, I had calls from different clubs with my agent. Afterwards, I had the Bayern coach with whom we spoke and with whom we have a good relationship,” said Pavard.

“He made me understand that I was in his plans, that I was important for the team. Maybe one day I will go to one of these clubs, you never know what the future holds.

“I’m still at Bayern Munich. Afterwards, we have time to project ourselves.”
