It seems certain that Benjamin Pavard will leave VfB Stuttgart after the season. The 22-year-old drew attention from some of Europe's top clubs during the World Cup, and in 2019, a release clause of €35 million will become active.
But which club will Pavard join? So far, the French international has been linked most heavily with Bayern München, but according to Mundo Deportivo, he has now been offered to FC Barcelona by his agent. The Catalan club are currently considering if a transfer would make sense.
VfB Stuttgart sporting director Michael Reschke recently said that he fulle expects Pavard to join one of Europe's top clubs next summer.
"In the 2019/20 season, Pavard will be playing for a top-five club. That is clear and perfectly all right. He has an exit clause," Reschke said during the 'Wontorra - der o2 Fußball-Talk' TV show.
Pavard can both play at the right-back as he did for France during the World Cup and in the central defense.
