Juventus block Benatia exit

Milan, Arsenal and Schalke 04 have made offers for Medhi Benatia, but Juventus refuse to release the centre-back in January.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 31-year-old Morocco international is more than happy to consider moving on, as he is frustrated at the lack of regular playing time.

However, Juventus have no intention of letting him leave mid-season.

Benatia has been given just six competitive appearances this term and his contract is due to expire in June 2020, so a summer exit is more than likely.

Juve purchased him from Bayern Munich in 2016 for a total €20m.
