Although he only just joined Roma last summer, his stunning displays have attracted plenty of attention from English clubs, with both Manchester clubs and Chelsea interested in signing the 27-year-old center back. Regular first team football has always been Benatia’s top priority and with both Manchester City and Chelsea, unlikely to offer Benatia that, he might well choose to stay at Roma. But, if United, having recently lost both Vidic and Ferdinand, coming looking for an experienced center half to play in their first team, an improved pay and the prospect of winning trophies might just entice the Moroccan to move to Old Trafford.
Although he only just signed for Roma, there is a very good chance that Benatia will leave the Giallorossi this summer. With plenty of top European clubs circling for his signature, chances are, he will move for at least twice the money Roma paid for his services last summer. With their first-team opening and a chance to win trophies, if Manchester United come calling, it would be hard to Benatia to refuse. Even if the Red Devils don’t make a move for him, chances are he will likely end up in England by the start of the next Premier League campaign.
