Espanyol sell Marc Roca to Bayern for €15m

Espanyol have sold midfielder Marc Roca to Bayern Munich for €15m, according to SPORT.

It is reported that all three parties signed an agreement today with Roca set to sign a four-year deal (with the option of a fifth year).

Roca, 23, must first pass a medical before the transfer can be completed.

Quique Iglesias of Cadena COPE says the deal will be made official on Monday.

The former Spain under-21 international will play no part in Espanyol’s derby against Sabadell on Sunday.

Bayern have long admired Roca and almost signed him in 2019.

Since then, the talented midfielder has been linked with a host of clubs, including Atletico Madrid and Arsenal.

But after interest from Sheffield United and Burnley in recent days, Roca appears to be getting the big move he wanted.

His exit will allow Espanyol to make some moves in the transfer market before the end of the window.

4/10 UPDATE:

Roca to Bayern is now official.
