Man Utd to offer unhappy Juventus man a January escape route

Date published: Monday 5th November 2018 2:25 - Oli Fisher

Manchester United are interested in a possible January move for a Juventus defender, if the latest reports from Italy are to be believed.

Tuttosport (via Calciomercato) claim that Jose Mourinho has turned his attentions to Serie A in his search for defensive reinforcments, with Medhi Benatia the player being monitored.

Le10Sport claimed that incoming Arsenal boss Unai Emery was keen on the centre-back and Calciomercato have reported that Arsenal are keeping tabs on Benatia.

The Morocco captain threw his future in Turin into doubt claiming that he aims for more game time. Now, Tuttosport are claiming that the Red Devils have shown interest in the former Roma and Bayern Munich star.

“I struggle to play with no consistency. I was doing well last season because I was playing on a regular basis,” he told La Stampa.

“Now it’s not the same. This is my job and I always need to work hard to be ready to play but it’s a situation I don’t like.

“I am 31 and I want to play as much as I can. Let’s see what happens in January, how many games I will play. Let’s see if Juve and Allegri need me. I am here to give my best and that’s what I will do until I’m here. If the mister will need me in the Champions League I will be ready.”

Mundo Deportivo also claimed that Barcelona are monitoring Benatia as a possible replacement for Samuel Umtiti, who will remain out of action for several months due to a knee injury.
