Benatia has Juventus medicals

Moroccan central defender Medhi Benatia has landed in Turin and is having his medicals with Juventus.

The 29-year-old will be expected to act as a super-sub in the famous BBC backline at the Old Lady, after only two years with Bayern Munich.

The player has now been spotted reaching the JMedical centre in Turin, where he is set to take his medical exams. A small crowd of supporters was there to greet him upon his arrival.

Juventus themselves confirmed that his medicals are now underway by a statement on their Twitter profile.

Once the exams are complete, he will sign an official contract with the Turin giants. He should be earning €2.9m per season, which will be raised to €3.2m with the bonuses.
