Man United target "unhappy" at current club - he would be perfect for ten Hag's side
| Last updated
Bayern Munich defender Benjamin Pavard is 'unhappy' at his current club, according to reports - with Man United potentially ready to swoop in.
Erik ten Hag's side have been linked with a number of full-backs in recent days, with Diogo Dalot having started every game for the Red Devils this season at right-back.
He has had little competition for the role, given that Aaron Wan-Bissaka has missed the majority of the season with a back injury.
But comments made by Ten Hag after United's 1-0 win over West Ham on Sunday suggested that the club were exploring the opportunity of bringing in a new right-back to compete with Dalot.
On Monday, Football Insider claimed that the Red Devils were exploring a move for Norwich's Max Aarons, with the England youth international reportedly available for £15 million.
In addition, Sky Sports Germany reporter Florian Plettenburg has said that United sent scouts to watch Bayer Leverkusen's Jeremie Frimpong during his side's recent 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.
But they may also have been keeping an eye on another international full-back from the German top division - and the latest reports might pique the club's interest further.
Benjamin Pavard 'unhappy' amid United rumours
According to Sky Sports Germany and fellow German outlet Sport1 (as per the Daily Mirror), Pavard is 'unhappy' due to being left out of the starting lineup for Bayern Munich's recent fixtures.
The former Stuttgart defender has been a regular in the position since arriving at the club in the summer of 2019.
However, he has often been rotated this season. Bayern signed Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax in the summer transfer window.
And, as per the above sources, Pavard is upset to have not started the club's most recent two games, with Mazraoui preferred.
Julian Nagelsmann's side won 3-0 at Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday, before thrashing Mainz 6-2 in the Bundesliga at the Allianz Arena.
The France international - who infamously scored a wonder goal at the 2018 World Cup last 16 stage against Argentina - would be a perfect fit for Ten Hag's side to provide competition for Dalot at right-back, although it would seem he would need assurances of playing time.
In addition, Pavard told Telefoot (via BuliNews) in September that, despite regularly playing at right-back in recent years, he is 'not a natural' in the position, meaning he could also provide competition for the right-sided centre-back role that he occupied at Stuttgart.
