Fez- According to a number of media reports, Moroccan defender Mehdi Benatia is on his way to German giant Bayern Munich.The Roma highly rated defender has been coveted by a number of European clubs, such as F.C. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United.British media reported last week that the Moroccan international had signed for Chelsea before the rumor was denied by the player’s agent. According to French newspaper L’Equipe, the 27-year old defender’s agent Moussa Sissoko was in Munich on Monday to finalize the terms of the transfer of Benatia. The same source said that Sissoko went back to Roma with a serious offer from the German team to secure the services of the Moroccan international player.Bayern Munich is believed to have offered €30 million, just €5 million below the price set by A.S Roma.
