Manchester United want to sign Serie A defender Mehdi Benatia in the summer, and are willing to pay his £10m valuation to Roma, reports Italian publication Tuttomercato.
The 26-year-old Moroccan has excelled in Italy this term, and has emerged as one of David Moyes’ prime centre-back targets when the season ends.
Club captain Nemanja Vidic has confirmed he’ll leave Old Trafford this June when his contract expires, so the Red Devils will definitely will need to bring in at least one replacement.
Benatia has been ever present for Roma this term, and has actually scored five goals in Serie A too, for the club that sit second in the table.
He is an excellent passer, and is comfortable at bringing the ball out from the back and linking up play with midfield. He is also adept at intercepting opposition possession, and could form a partnership with either Phil Jones or Jonny Evans in United’s defence.
