Leeds agree deal to sign Marc Roca from Bayern Munich

Leeds United have struck a deal to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca, 90min can confirm, with a medical set for Friday morning.

Manager Jesse Marsch has been looking to add more depth to his midfield and quickly set his sights on Roca, with the two clubs working towards an agreement earlier this month.

Sources close to Leeds have now confirmed to 90min that the terms of the transfer have been finalised, with the Premier League side expected to part with around £12m plus add-ons for the 25-year-old.

Medical tests are scheduled for Friday and Leeds are hopeful of finalising Roca’s arrival at Elland Road in the coming days.

Should all go according to plan, Roca will become the Whites’ third signing of the summer, following on from Brenden Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen, who have both made the jump from Red Bull Salzburg.

Roca is set to compete for minutes in a midfield which could lose Kalvin Phillips. 90min understands that Manchester City are hopeful of signing the England international, who could cost close to the £50m mark.

Leeds are also braced for the potential departure of Raphinha, who is wanted by a number of sides across Europe and has been hit with a similar price tag to Phillips.
