Potential swap deal in the works as Man City identify Bayern Munich star as Kyle Walker replacement

Premier League giants Manchester City have identified a headline member of the defensive ranks at Bayern Munich as their first-choice target to replace the outbound Kyle Walker, according to reports.

For those who may have missed it, a fresh, and altogether significant update on right-back Walker’s future was forthcoming earlier today.

This came in the form of confirmation that the England international has given the go-ahead to bringing an end to his starring stint in Manchester, in favour of a new adventure in Germany, with Bayern Munich.

Negotiations, in turn, have been kicked into gear between the respective boards at The Etihad and Allianz Arena, with a view to striking a deal over the course of the week ahead.

As alluded to above, though, should City have their way, then the ongoing talks with their counterparts in Munich could soon include a headline member of Thomas Tuchel’s squad, too.

The player in question? Benjamin Pavard.

‘Manchester City have now Benjamin Pavard on top of their list as new right back.’

The German international, available at a reduced price ahead of the expiration of his contract next summer, has emerged as Pep Guardiola’s ‘priority’ target to replace Walker.

A cash-plus-player deal, as a result, could be on the cards, with English champions City sending Walker, along with an agreed sum, to the Allianz for Pavard.
