Bayern to make offer for Benatia

As revealed by the German sports channel Sport 1, Bayern Munich’s Technical Director Michael Reschke could depart for Rome next week to present an offer to AS Roma for centre back Mehdi Benatia.

The Moroccan has become one of the main players targeted by the Bavarian club after a serious injury to Javi Martinez which will leave the Spaniard out for up to 8 months. Bayern however, must overcome strong competition from Manchester United who were reportedly close to sealing a deal for Benatia according to the British press.
