WATCH: Bayern defender Benatia arrives for Juventus medical
The 29-year-old is in Turin to complete a medical ahead of his proposed loan move to the Italian champion from Die Roten.
Medhi Benatia is undergoing a medical in Turin ahead of his switch from Bayern Munich to Juventus.
Benatia is expected to join the Serie A champion on an initial season-long loan deal that can become permanent for a fee reported to be in the region of 20 million euros ($22.2 million) in 2017.
Juventus tweeted pictures of the defender being greeted by a crowd of fans as he arrived to compete tests at the club’s J-Medical center on Thursday.

Benatia previously starred in Serie A with Roma before joining Bayern in a €26M ($28.9M) deal in 2014, although he struggled to find his best form and was restricted to 11 starts for the Bundesliga winner last term due to injury.
The 29-year-old provides Juve with a defensive reinforcement following the departure of Uruguay international Martin Caceres, who left when his contract expired last month.
