Speculation continues to suggest that the Morocco international could soon be lured away from the Italian capital.

Manchester City are said to have held an interest in the 27-year-old for some time, while Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked with a summer approach.

Roma, however, are adamant that Benatia is not for sale.

They won the race for his signature last season as a deal was struck with Serie A rivals Udinese and Garcia is adamant that a friendly outing against Liverpool on Wednesday will not be Benatia’s last for the Giallorossi.

He said: “He’s under contract with us and for me he will be a Roma player this season.

“Mehdi is happy, motivated. He will play against Liverpool and there aren’t any problems.”
