Benatia will leave Udinese

Mehdi Benatia has suggested that he'll leave Udinese in order to join a European giant at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old is being paired with a variety of sides given his development at the Stadio Friuli over the last 12 months.

"I have a deal with Udinese and I don't think I'll leave in January as the club don't want to sell me during the campaign," the Moroccan noted.

"However, I do think that I will leave at the end of the season."

The defender is reportedly of interest to the two Manchester clubs and Inter, but he's opened the door for a Ligue 1 switch.

"There are rumours about Paris Saint-Germain," he added. "They would be an interesting option as they are an outfit with big ambitions and a huge project."
