Bayern sign Roca from Espanyol for reported initial €15M fee

Bayern Munich have bolstered their midfield with the signing Spanish midfielder Marc Roca from Espanyol, the Bundesliga holders announced Sunday.

Roca, 23, penned a deal through 2025 with Bayern in a move valued at €15 million, plus a potential €5 million in add-ons, according to ESPN UK’s David Cartlidge

“I’m very happy. This is a dream come true for me. I think FC Bayern is the best club in the world and has strong tradition. I’m really looking forward to wearing the colors of this great club,” Roca said.

Roca was a key contributor for the Spain side that won the Under-21 Euros in 2019, and he’ll address concerns about depth in Hansi Flick’s midfield following Thiago Alcantara‘s move to Liverpool.

Bayern are also keen to add reinforcements in other areas as part of their treble defense. Former Paris Saint-Germain striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting will reportedly cement a free transfer to the Allianz Arena after discussion with Hoffenheim‘s Andrej Kramaric broke down.
