Could Mats Hummels be on his way to Stamford Bridge

The toussled, talented young French defender, a World Champion as of last summer, is reportedly set to cost Bayern around €35million.

Bayern Munich have agreed a deal to sign French World Cup victor Benjamin Pavard from Stuttgart this summer.

Benjamin Pavard will join Bayern Munich in the summer after agreeing a five-year deal with the Bundesliga champions.

Bayern are now on their annual winter training camp in Doha as they prepare for the second half of the Bundesliga campaign.

But with Stuttgart still in the relegation zone at the halfway point of the season, Pavard has now agreed to move to Munich on a five-year deal at the end of the season.

Last summer, he started and finished six of France's seven World Cup matches and scored in the round of 16 win against Argentina.

"I can announce that we managed to get the services of Benjamin Pavard from July 1, 2019", Salihamidzic told reporters during a Bayern training camp in Qatar, without giving any financial details of the transfer.

He has also played 14 times in the Bundesliga this term, but Stuttgart are toiling in 16th place.

Pavard joined Stuttgart from Lille in 2016 and has been used as a centre-back and right-back by both club and country.
