Juventus has officially signed Medhi Benatia on loan from Bayern Munich with an option to buy at €17m.
The official statement from the club:
“Juventus Football Club can this evening confirm that Medhi Benatia has joined the club on a season-long loan deal from Bayern Munich for a fee of €3 million, to be paid at the international transfer release.”
“The agreement also provides Juventus with the option to purchase the defender on a permanent basis for a price of €17 million, to be paid over two financial years. This option must be exercised before 30 May 2017.”
Benatia played at Roma and Udinese before he left Italy for Bayern in 2014. His injuries were a concern since he departed the Giallorossi, but he now looks to help his new club compete for a Champions League trophy.
