According to “Ansa” through an Italian intermediary, Branchini, Bayer Munich increased his bid for Mehdi Benatia. This endless negotiation seems to be in the final stage.
Yesterday, Walter Sabatini met Branchini in Milan and the actual bid for the strong Moroccan defender is 26 million + extra 4 million in bonuses. Obviously the total amount is 30 million but Roma would like to receive an higher fixed amount. At this stage it is not possible to know if Roma decided to sell Benatia anyhow also if they don’t receive the right amount. This negotiation is still very intricate because the bid presented through Branchini will be Bayer Munich’s last bid…take it or leave it. On the other hand, Roma are trying to maximize as match as possible Benatia’s sale.
We will see who will win this chess game
