Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has ruled out a move for France’s World Cup winner Benjamin Pavard and left the door open for Jerome Boateng to leave the Bundesliga champions.

Defender Pavard has been linked with a move away from Stuttgart after starring as Les Bleus went all the way in Russia.

Bayern were thought to be leading the chasing for the 22-year-old but Rummenigge, who said they would consider a “serious offer” for reported Paris Saint-Germain target Boateng, insisted the club are well stocked defensively.

He told German newspaper Bild: “Could Benjamin Pavard replace Boateng in Bayern? No.

“We have (Mats) Hummels, (Niklas) Sule, (Javi) Martinez who can play in central defence, (David) Alaba and two young players, Lukas Mai and Chris Richards. There are many qualities.”

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has reignited the transfer speculation surrounding star midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Serbian only recently came out and declared that he would be staying with the Serie A outfit this season only for the Lazio chief to claim that “indecent offers” will be considered.

The 23-year-old has been linked with the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

“I never put Milinkovic-Savic up for sale,” Lotito told RMC Sport.

“As with everything, indecent offers will be evaluated. In the interest of the club.”

Milinkovic-Savic scored 14 goals in all competitions for Lazio last season but a bid in excess of €100m is thought to be required to facilitate a transfer.

Paris Saint-Germain continue to pursue Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante, according to the Mirror.

The midfielder was integral to France’s World Cup winning campaign in Russia this summer and has attracted the attention of the Ligue 1 giants.

According to reports, the Blues are keen on offering Kante a new contract that will make him the highest paid player at Stamford Bridge.

However, PSG are willing to better those wages in a bid to lure him to the French capital.

Kante has emerged as a top target for new boss Thomas Tuche but he remains crucial to Maurizio Sarri’s plans as well.
