Sky Italia: Benatia breaks with Roma management, Bayern ready for a second offer

Mehdi Benatia’s future might be away from Rome, according to Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

According to various sources, Walter Sabatini proposed Mehdi Benatia (27) a contract extension two days ago. However, things did not go smooth as expected. According to Sky Sport’s Gianluca Di Marzio, the Moroccan defender closed the door to the extension proposal and is waiting for an offer from FC Bayern. AS Roma management is reported to be extremely upset at Benatia’s behavior.

Sky Sport believes a second offer from Bayern may arrive soon, and it could be closer to the €30 million region as required by Roma. Walter Sabatini is already eyeing possible replacement, with the names of Vlad Chiriches (24) and Matija Nastasic (21) being the most credibile alternatives to replace Benatia.
