Benatia: Juventus or Milan?

Sky Sport Italia claim Medhi Benatia is still deciding between Juventus and Milan after Bayern Munich set terms.

The defender struggled to make his mark in the Bundesliga after moving from Roma two years ago.

According to pundit Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus have agreed terms with Bayern Munich to take him on loan with option to buy for €20m.

However, Milan are pushing hard to convince Benatia he’s better off at San Siro.

However, FCInterNews report Murillo put a spanner in the works by refusing a transfer to Russia.

He would prefer to remain at Inter or go to another big club, so Bayern Munich are emerging as an option.

Juve: Benatia forces Rugani out?

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, if Benatia is signed from Bayern Munich, Rugani will ask to leave Juventus. This, however, doesn't mean that he would be going for good, as he could still be loaned out.
