Arsenal, Bayern Munich target Pavard: Why I chose to stay

Benjamin Pavard admits he had major offers to leave Stuttgart over the summer.

The France defender was a target for the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United, Arsenal and Bayern Munich.

But Pavard says he owed his loyalty to Stuttgart this season.

"They came to pick me up in Lille, when few people believed in me," he said.

"With this shirt, I had many proposals but in my head it was clear that I had to stay at least another season in Stuttgart."
