Football transfer rumours: Mehdi Benatia to Manchester United?

Today’s fluff saw you sleeping on a station on a dredgy wood bench

Manchester United could move for Mehdi Benatia in January, as their fruitless summer search for defensive reinforcements becomes increasingly desperate as days lengthen, and so does the gap between United clean sheets. The 31-year-old has spent seven of Juventus’s 11 league games on the bench and played in only one of their three Champions League fixtures, and having recently complained that “I struggle to play with no consistency” a move to Old Trafford might make sense for all involved. For a start, the Moroccan international would probably feel right at home in an entire team that struggles to play with any consistency, plus with 18 months remaining on his contract and only a bit-part role in the team, Benatia might also prove a bargain, at least compared with the more expensive options the club half-heartedly pursued in pre-season.
