Medhi Benatia has joined Qatari club Al Duhail from Juventus in a deal worth €10 million (£9m/$11m), Goal understands.
His place at Juve will be taken by Martin Cacerers, who is set to join the Bianconeri from Lazio.
Benatia has agreed a deal believed to be worth €5m per season in order to join Al Duhail, who won the Qatar Stars League last season.
The club had hoped to be able to persuade the Moroccan to remain in Turin, but it is understood that it was the player’s wish to call time on his Serie A career and pursue a new challenge in the Middle East.
But the 31-year-old could not be swayed by the option to engage in a relegation battle either in the principality or in west London.
Uruguay defender Cacerers will link up with his new Juve teammates in a like-for-like transfer after spending the last 12 months at Lazio, whom he joined from Verona during the 2018 January transfer window.
Juventus travel to the capital to face Cacerers’ old club on Sunday knowing that a win could extend their lead at the top of Serie A to 12 points – if second-place Napoli lose to AC Milan at the San Siro on Saturday evening.
