(BBC Sport) Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed centre-back Medhi Benatia is leaving the club, with the Serie A leaders set to re-sign Uruguay defender Martin Caceres as his replacement.
Moroccan Benatia, 31, is reported to be joining Al Duhail in Qatar in a deal worth 10m euros (£8.6m).
He joined the Italian champions on loan from Bayern Munich in 2016, before signing permanently a year later.
"It wouldn't make sense to keep a player who is reluctant," said Allegri.
"Benatia made a choice and the club evaluated and accepted his request."
