Chelsea in talks over Roma defender
Chelsea have reportedly opened talks with AS Roma over the £30m signing of Moroccan defender Mehdi Benatia, according to the Daily Express.
The Blues are keen to strengthen at the back after selling David Luiz to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer, and are now hoping to tie up this deal before the end of the summer.
Manchester United have also been linked with the 27-year-old, though they may now have switched their focus to Sporting Lisbon star Marcos Rojo.
