  • Benatia: Bayern a dream

    By Football Italia staff

    Mehdi Benatia is today in Germany to complete formalities on a ‘dream’ transfer from Roma to Bayern Munich.

    A summer of speculation surrounding the 27-year-old’s future at Trigoria was ended yesterday with confirmation of an agreement between the Bundesliga champions and the Giallorossi for his transfer.

    Today the player has flown out from the Italian capital to Germany, to undergo a medical and put pen to paper on a believed five-year contract paying a €4m salary.

    “I am happy that finally the move to Bayern Munich has been worked out,” Benatia has told Sport1 in a first interview.

    “It has been a bit drawn out and during this time I thought the move may break down.

    “I had a great time in Rome, but now I am looking forward to a new chapter in my life.

    “In Bavaria there are many great players, the squad is excellent. This is a dream, as from now I will be a part of it.

    “Pep Guardiola strongly wanted me. I am looking forward to working with him. He is a great Coach.

    “I am ready to help Bayern become even stronger and will do my best to ensure that we have a successful season and that the fans are happy.”

    Bayern are reportedly paying Roma an initial fee of €26m for Benatia, to be followed by a possible further €4m, tied to various bonuses.

    The Giallorossi yesterday signed Kostas Manolas from Olympiacos, as a first replacement for the Morocco international.

  • Transfers: Bayern-Roma close on Benatia

    (Football Italia) Roma and Bayern Munich are reportedly edging ever closer to a agreeing a deal for the transfer of Mehdi Benatia.

    It has been widely reported that in recent days the German champions have come in with a substantial offer for the 27-year-old centre-back.

    Whilst initial talks suggested a frugal Bayern was struggling to agree terms with both player and club, indications are of improved talks and progress towards the deal’s completion.

    The Gazzetta dello Sport today reiterate that Bayern have tabled a €24m bid for Benatia, with a further €4m due in bonuses.

    Whilst this is seen as likely to be enough to close the deal, Gianluca Di Marzio’s website suggests that there remains one delay further in who takes on payment of a five per cent clause due on the transfer fee to each of Benatia’s past clubs.
