Juve consider Benatia return?

Juventus are reportedly considering a shock deal to bring defender Medhi Benatia back from Qatari side Al-Duhail.

According to La Stampa, Juve have weighed up a possible return for Benatia as they seek a defender with his qualities.

The former Roma stopper spent two-and-a-half years in Turin, winning two Scudetti and reaching a Champions League Final.

However, he left for Qatar in January after a feud with then-Coach Max Allegri.

Allegri has since departed the Bianconeri, and the newspaper writes the 32-year-old has already given his approval to a second stint in Turin.

Benatia would be the third centre-back to join Juve this summer, with Cristian Romero and Merih Demiral also set to arrive.
