The Moroccan defender forced a move away from the Stadio Olimpico last season, and joined German giants Bayern Munich, but he could be heading back to Italy just a year later.
Mehdi Benatia won a title in his first season at Bayern Munich, but the ex-Roma defender only played in 15 games this season, with injuries hindering his campaign.
Erick Thohir looks to continue his big spending by saving Benatia from the Bayern bench and bringing him to the Giuseppe Meazza this summer, via Gianluca Di Marzio. The Nerazzurri just squeaked into the top ten defenses in Serie A this season, but still conceded 48 goals, most of which were rookie errors and miscommunication. The best defender in Serie for the 13/14 season would definitely bring a change of mentality to a terrible Inter backline.
No fee as has been mentioned as of yet, as these seem to be preliminary talks that will kick off serious talks as we venture deep into the mercato.
