Roma-Benatia-Hummels: a possible market scenario

Data by Transfermarkt

The situation between Roma and Benatia does not seem to be very calm. The player seems to be unhappy by not having received what he believes to be a fair adjustment of his contract. On the other side, Roma are looking forward to alternatives in case some crazy offer arrives on Sabatini‘s desk.

The actual scenario is very intricate because sources from the UK swear that Manchester City is ready for the final assault against the strong Moroccan defender. Benatia would be really happy to try a new experience in the UK, especially because his salary would be doubled

However, Sabatini & co are not just waiting for a great offer but they already identified his possible replacement, Mats Hummels. The strong German defender is actually involved in the World Cup and he is definitely one of the best defenders on the world panorama. Hummels lives pretty well in Dortmund, however, he seems to be disappointed by the latest market operations that the German team have closed. Two years ago, Borussia Dortmund‘s star  Mario Götze joined Bayer Munich, and this year Robert Lewandowski is following the same direction. A this stage, Hummels could think that his moment to leave for a new experience has arrived. 

Sabatini is looking forward to starting a negotiation with Borussia Dortmund’s management although it will not be easy to find an agreement with them. Mats Hummels‘ price is between €26 and €30 million, an amount that Roma could afford thanks to the sale of Benatia.
