Benatia drops PSG hint

Mehdi Benatia has intimated that he'd like to leave Udinese for Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the campaign.

Benatia continues to be paired with the French outfit and he's told Radio Montecarlo that a switch is possible.

"Paris SG are an interesting option," the defender stated when questioned on the constant transfer speculation.

"I said as much in August. I spoke to the Udinese President about it at that time, but he didn't want to sell me.

"I'm from Paris, my family live there and there is an important project being developed at PSG.

"We could talk about it again at the end of the season..."

Benatia, a Moroccan international, was netted by the Italians in 2010 from French Ligue 2 side Clermont.

The Bianconero, also paired with Inter, will turn 25 in April.
