FCB agree terms with Roma for Benatia

A few days before the summer transfer window closes, FC Bayern are poised to sign another new player. Late on Tuesday afternoon the German double winners and AS Roma agreed the terms of a deal brining Moroocan international Mehdi Benatia to Munich. The player will move for an undisclosed fee.

Benatia will come to the Bavarian capital in the next few days for the obligatory pre-transfer medical. Provided all is satisfactory, the 27-year-old centre-back will sign a five-year contract.
