Roma issue ultimatum concerning Benatia

According to today’s edition of La Repubblica, Walter Sabatini and Rudi Garcia have issued an ultimatum to both Medhi Benatia and the clubs trying to sign the Moroccan center back.

La Repubblica report that Sabatini and Garcia have decided that this is the final week in which Benatia could be sold. The reported asking price is upwards of 35 million but no offers will be considered after this week as Garcia prefers to have time to integrate a possible replacement for Benatia before the season starts.

In recent days Bayern Munich have entered the race to sign the 27 year old defender due to a long term injury suffered by Javi Martinez.
