Serie A star won’t leave for small clubs.
Udinese star Mehdi Benatia has declared that he will only leave the club if an offer too big to turn down comes his way, Sky Sports reports.
The 26-year-old is currently enjoying his second season with the cub after joining from French side Clermont Foot last summer and he has stated that only an offer from a ‘huge’ club would be enough to tempt him away from Italy.
It’s thought that the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea have all been keeping an eye on his progress recently, whilst in Italy both AC, Inter, Fiorentina and Juventus have expressed an interest in the centre back.
However, the French born Moroccan international has insisted that he is happy to stay at Udinese and it would take an offer from one of those aforementioned teams to drag him away.
“I am loving my time in Italy. The league is a very good one and to be honest an important Italian team will always be my first choice unless a huge English, Spanish or German club come for me,” he said.
“The Italian league is a top championship with top clubs who are very attractive as well, so if I have an offer from a big club here I will listen to that club.”
Benatia has made 20 appearances for Udinese this season and is under contract until 2017.
