AC Milan are very interested in Spanish midfielder Marc Roca and Espanyol are ready to sanction a move for a bargain fee.
In the summer transfer window AC Milan will bring in a new central midfielder. So far the top two targets of the Rossoneri are Brescia talent Sandro Tonali and Spanish maestro Marc Roca.
Signing Tonali would require a huge investment of at least 35 million euros. Not to mention the fact that Inter have already agreed personal terms with the player. However, Tonali’s alternative, Marc Roca, is more easily reachable.
The 23-year-old defensive midfielder will leave Espanyol after the Spanish club relegated to the second division. Roca has a release clause of 40 million euros but he will be available for much less in the summer.
MilanNews.it reports that Espanyol are willing to sell Marc Roca for 20 million euros and that figure can be reachable even with bonuses. While last season the La Liga club refused a similar fee from Bayern Munich, the situation has now changed.
Great news for the Rossoneri who have been following the 23-year-old for the past season and are convinced in his potential. Nevertheless, the Rossoneri must act quickly because a number of Spanish clubs are interested in his services. The deep-lying playmaker is often looked like a hybrid between Sergio Busquets and Xabi Alonso. He has made 119 official appearances with Espanyol.
