Sheffield United or Burnley tipped to sign Marc Roca

English clubs Sheffield United and Burnley are interested in Espanyol midfielder Marc Roca, according to La Grada.

Roca, 23, has been expected to seal a move away from Espanyol this summer after they were relegated from La Liga.

But despite links to important clubs such as Arsenal, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid, he remains with his boyhood team.

A move to any Spanish side has been complicated by strict financial rules put in place during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Roca’s best hope for a move before the transfer window shuts may be a less fashionable Premier League team.

La Grada states that Sheffield United and Burnley ‘love’ the former Spain under-21 international.

For €15m-rated Roca, who almost joined Bayern Munich in 2019, this would not be the ideal option.

But only English clubs are in a position to pay transfer fees while offering players a better salary.

And if other offers fail to arrive, ‘everything seems to indicate’ that Roca will join Sheffield United or Burnley.
