Rabat- After Real Madrid, AC Milan and Manchester United, it is FC Barcelona’s turn to show interest in Mehdi Benatia.
The stocks of AS Roma’s defender Mehdi Benatia have risen recently, and the eyes of the biggest teams in the world are now on him.
According to the Moroccan daily Akhbar Alyaoum, a statement was posted on FC Barcelona’s official website on Tuesday that Tata Martino considers Benatia the best replacement for Carles Puyol.
According to the same source, FC Barcelona and Manchester United are each attempting to sign with Morocco’s football player.
The 26-year-old defender of AS Roma is still under contract with his Italian team until July 2018, but a larger sum of money may change Roma’s opinion, especially when the deal concerns FC Barcelona.
