It has been reported that AS Roma boss Rudi Garcia has told Manchester City that Mehdi Benatia is not for sale this summer.
It is said that the Premier League champions are believed to be keen on the 27-year old Moroccan centre-back but Garcia has made it vehemently clear that the Giallorossi are in no mood to sell.
“Benatia has four years left on his contract and no release clause. He will remain with us next term,” said Garcia.
Benatia joined Roma from Udinese for £12million last summer and excelled in 33 Serie A appearances for the capital club.
