By on November 7, 2011

Udinese chief Stefano Antonelli remains adamant that defender Mehdi Benatia won’t be sold in January despite growing interest in the defender.

The highly rated Moroccan international has been linked with a New Year switch to PSG, Manchester United and Chelsea but Antonelli has categorically ruled out a move.

“We are really counting on the player,” Antonelli said on Friday evening. “He certainly won’t be leaving the club in January.

“Negotiations? At this moment in time we are talking to no other clubs about him. We’ll see what happens in the future.”

The versatile defender has been rated at around £8million.
