MUNICH (AP) — Bayern Munich says defender Mehdi Benatia has completed his transfer from Roma and signed a five-year contract with the Bundesliga champion.

The two clubs agreed not to disclose financial details of the deal. Benatia signed after passing his medical.

The Morocco defender will fill the gap left by Javi Martinez, who is out for about six months after tearing knee ligaments.
