Chelsea want Roma's Benatia

After Manchester City and Manchester United, it’s reported Chelsea want Roma defender Mehdi Benatia.

The Moroccan international had seemed to be on his way out amid a contract dispute earlier this summer, but moves to either of the two Manchester clubs failed to materialise.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea are intensifying their interest in centre-back Benatia.

The former Udinese player is still unsure about staying, but Roma want around €35m (£28m) for the 27-year-old.
