Pavard backing Bayern Munich move for Atletico Madrid defender Lucas

Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard is backing France teammate Lucas Hernandez's move to Bayern Munich.

Pavard will move to the defending Bundesliga champions once the 2018-19 campaign concludes, with the France international reportedly earning Stuttgart €35m. Atletico Madrid defender Hernandez is also a confirmed target for Bayern.

"We are very good friends and I think it would be fantastic if Lucas also came to Bayern," Pavard told Sport Bild.

"He proved that he is a great player. First, [we were] together for France, then for Bayern?

"That would make me proud, but it's a matter between Bayern and Lucas."
