Roma want €40m for Benatia

Mehdi Benatia has reportedly decided to leave Roma this summer, but they are seen as only prepared to consider offers around €40m.

Benatia’s form for the Giallorossi last term has seen him heading into the transfer market with apparent interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Manchester United and Manchester City.

The centre-back and his agent’s comments made over Roma’s ‘disrespectful’ offer a new contract has since heightened that speculation that his future lies away from the capital.

Whilst the trail has gone cold of late, the Gazzetta dello Sport today indicate that the 27-year-old has decided he wants to leave the club during the summer.

However, at the same time, the paper indicate that Roma are only willing to consider his exit should an offer of around the €40m mark comes in.
