Leeds confirm the £10million signing of Marc Roca from Bayern as the midfielder joins Elland Road as third this summer

LEEDS have upped their summer spending to £45m with the signing of Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca.

The 25-year-old Spaniard completed a medical this afternoon before penning a four-year deal.

Roca leaves the German champions and moves to Leeds

The Whites have moved quickly to bolster their ranks in midfield as they prepare for a bid from Manchester City for starman Kalvin Phillips.

Upon joining, Roca tweeted: “Excited to join @LUFC 🤝

“I can’t wait to start this amazing challenge. I will do my best.

“Looking forward to playing at Elland Road 🏟 Marching on Together 💙! #LUFC.”

United insist Roca has been signed to play alongside Phillips but there is a belief the £50million-rated England star will be difficult to keep.

Roca is Leeds’ third arrival of the transfer window, having joined attacking midfielder Brenden Aaronson and right-back Rasmus Kristensen from RB Salzburg for a combined £35m.

Roca joined Bayern from Espanyol in 2020 but has struggled to secure a starting spot in two seasons at Bayern.

If Phillips leaves his boyhood club, Leeds will switch to another midfielder – Sheffield United’s Sander Berge is admired.

RB Leipzig’s Tyler Adams is another option in the middle of the park.

Meanwhile, Leeds have been linked in attacking areas with a move for Wolves winger Adama Traore.

The 26-year-old spent the second half of the 2021/22 season on loan at Barcelona but there are fears the Spanish giants may not be able to fund a permanent deal.

As a result, he was reportedly identified as an affordable target by Jesse Marsch’s side – with a subdued £20million asking price.

Leeds transfer boss Victor Orta signed the Spaniard from Aston Villa for Middlesbrough in 2016 and remains a fan.

The club are desperate to avoid another thrilling relegation battle – with Marsch’s men avoiding the setback in last season’s final.
