Milan reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Juventus defender



Milan are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign Juventus defender Medhi Benatia.

According to Sport Mediaset, Benatia is veering ‘increasingly’ towards bidding Juve farewell in January.

This would be because the Rossoneri are ready to bring in the Moroccan on loan for the rest of the season with a €15m option to buy next summer.

The 31-year-old has made just five appearances for the Old Lady this season, with Leonardo Bonucci displacing him as Giorgio Chiellini’s centre-back partner.
