WHAT HAPPENED? Pavard is expressing a strong desire to join the Red Devils. However, the two clubs are currently at odds over the transfer fee, causing a significant hurdle in the potential move for the player, according to SkySports.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The French international, who can play at right-back and centre-back, has one year left on his current deal and is expected to cost between £30 million ($38m) and £35m ($44m). The transfer also hinges on the future of Harry Maguire, who is currently in talks with West Ham over a potential transfer.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Bayern wanted to replace Pavard with Manchester City's Kyle Walker, but he is staying with the Premier League champions. United have also explored other options in the market like Jean-Clair Todibo of Nice. According to the same reports, discussions have taken place with Todibo's representatives.
