Benatia signing delayed?

Medhi Benatia may not officially join Juventus until tomorrow, due to passport problems and an extended medical.

The Bayern Munich defender is in Turin to sign for the Bianconeri, and has been taking his medical at the J Medical centre.

The rigorous medical tests have taken some time, with a delay for Benatia to have lunch, but it’s not thought there are any problems.

In addition, the Moroccan international had a small bureaucratic issue with his passport, but reports that this has now been resolved.

While the deal will still go ahead, it’s now expected to be made official tomorrow morning, rather than today.

Benatia has therefore been unable to join up with his new teammates, who are training at Vinovo.
