Barcelona have opened talks with AS Roma defender Mehdi Benatia.

The Morocco international conceded last week he could be on the move this summer.

"I am 27 and have received a big number of proposals from big clubs. FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City are teams you dream about.

"My agent is working on it. Very soon we will know more," said Benatia.

France Football says Benatia's agent is in Barcelona this week for transfer talks.
