Bayern Munich have confirmed that Benjamin Pavard will join on a five-year deal from Stuttgart at the end of the season.
Pavard impressed as Didier Deschamps' side claimed a second world title in Russian Federation previous year.
The 22-year-old starred for France at the World Cup finals in the summer, playing at right-back for Didier Deschamps' side as they triumphed in Russian Federation.
His memorable strike against Argentina in the last 16 was also voted Goal of the Tournament, beating the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Pavard has been linked with numerous clubs since his eye-catching performances in Russian Federation, with Bayern rumoured to be interested in signing him immediately after the tournament. "We're glad and proud to have gained such a player for FC Bayern", said Salihamidzic as seen by Gam Yetu on the website.
Bayern are in Doha at a winter training camp during a winter break and return to action on 18 January at Hoffenheim.
Do you think Pavard is a good signing for Bayern?
"He has signed a five-year deal".
Wednesday's official announcement by Bayern Munich means Benjamin Pavard will complete the ongoing season with Stuttgart and will leave when this term comes to an end.
As revealed by Goal, the Bavarians have made a fourth bid of £35m ($45m) for Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, offering him the No.10 shirt in an attempt to convince him to move to Germany.
