Medhi Benatia admits he would be happy to move to Real Madrid or Juventus if he is not given more opportunities in the first team at Bayern Munich next season.

The defender made just 24 appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side last campaign following his €28 million move from Roma.

As a result, the Morocco international, 28, is open to leaving the Allianz Arena if he can gain a regular first-team spot elsewhere.

"The interest of Real Madrid and Juventus would flatter any player because they are two great clubs," the defender told Tuttosport. "Therefore, it cannot but make you happy.

"But I'm already at a great club, to whom I'm bound by contract for another four years.

"My goal is to win the Champions League but my main objective is to play 35-40 games next season.

"If I should realise that I'm not going to be able to do that, then I will start to look around.

"In football, as you know, anything can happen."
