Juventus central defender Mehdi Benatia is considering parting ways with German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

The Morocco international is currently on a season-long loan deal at Italian Serie A giants Juventus from Bayern, who have a five-year contract with Benatia.

Even though, the defender enjoyed some success with Bayern, he also struggled with injuries and he left the club after Mats Hummels' arrival last year

"I am not the only one in this case, and it is a problem whose reasons should be known," Benatia told Jeune Afrique Magazine.

The towering defender, who is still contracted to the German giants until 2019 believes "maybe it's time to leave."
It is believed that Benatia is not short of admirers as clubs from Italy, including Juventus, and England are keen to sign him on a permanent deal in the near future.

"I will study them. And then comes the time for reflection and choice."

Juventus are believed to have signed Benatia on a season-long loan for €3 million, with an option to buy for an extra €17 million at the end.

The French-born defender has made 10 league appearances for Juventus this season - netting once which was against AC Milan in March 2017.
