Di Marzio: Roma and Bayern negotiating

Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has reported an update regarding Mehdi Benatia on his official website:

“Bayern Munich push, Mehdi Benatia is a concrete objective. Today Roma met with Branchini, an intermediary. Bayern have offered €26 million plus €4 million in bonuses. The clubs are now less distant and they’ll keep negotiating. If a deal is completed, Roma would acquire (Kostas) Manolas. Bayern increase their bid, Benatia is further away from Roma.”
