10 years of FIF
I was thinking about this. Pavard at 6M wages and a 35M transfer fee would be the most expensive player in our squad. I'm not even sure we can call Pavard a world class player, although he is very good.I like Pavard and was among the first to suggest we should go for him. But I think 35m would be way too much for him. And he would be given 6m net/8m gross at the minimum (on par with Thuram).
That’d be way too expensive for someone who hasn’t been able to perform consistently for years. Probably due to being played out of position but the fact remained is that we’d be buying a underperforming player.
Also, Pavard would be perfect for our RCB role now. But if one day we decided to move from Inzaghi, we may find ourselves in a very awkward position with Pavard. As he is not exactly a great CB and he doesn’t like playing RB.
25m would be fair for him. Pavard also needs to be more direct with Bayern and his suitors about what he wants.
