Bayern München are planning to offload one of their current centre-backs after agreeing a deal to sign Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus, according to Kicker and Sky Germany.


Per Sky, de Ligt and Lucas Hernandez are expected to be Bayern's preferred centre-back pairing next season.

Accordingly, either Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano or Tanguy Nianzou will be allowed to leave the club.

It has previously been reported that Pavard could depart the German champions this summer.
