Benatia wants to honour contract

Udinese defender Mehdi Benatia has laughed off rumours he could depart the club, but has admitted that if the team wanted to cash in, he would leave.

The Moroccan international has been linked with Inter, Fiorentina and Juventus over the past few weeks, but has claimed that he wants to remain at Stadio Friuli until the end of his contract in 2017.

“I have a deal at Udinese that I want to honour,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “That is unless the club want me to leave and make some cash.

“I'm very flattered to be linked with those teams.”
