TRANSFER Balls: Arsenal and Manchester United never did sign Mehdi Benatia.

That’s a big shock to readers of Nick Lustig, one of the Star’s football writers:

Arsenal and Utd in two-horse race for Mehdi Benatia as Roma scrap Bayern meeting

According to Lustig, only United or Arsenal woulkd buy the Roma defender.

ARSENAL and Manchester United have received a huge boost in their pursuit of Roma defender Mehdi Benatia after the Italian club scrapped a proposed meeting with potential suitors Bayern Munich.

Lustig’s scoop was published on August 25.

On August 26, the BBC had news:

German champions Bayern Munich have reached an agreement to sign Morocco defender Mehdi Benatia from Roma for an undisclosed fee.

Earlier the Star reported that Benatia was taying at Roma and heading to Chelsea. Sky Sports said he’d signed for Manchester United.
