Juventus seal Medhi Benatia loan deal with option to buy from Bayern Munich

Medhi Benatia will spend at least next season with Juventus, and possibly more.

Juventus have signed Bayern Munich defender Medhi Benatia on a season-long loan.

The deal also includes an option for the Bianconeri to make the switch permanent for the price of €17 million over a two-year period.

The Morocco international arrived in Turin to complete his medical on Thursday morning.

A statement on the club's website read: "Juventus finalised an agreement with FC Bayern Munich.

"Benatia will arrive on loan for €3m, pending international clearance. Juventus have an option to buy for €17m, payable in two instalments, to be activated by May 30, 2017."

The 29-year-old has enjoyed spells with Udinese and Roma before leaving the Giallorossi for Bayern in 2014.
