£10.2m transfer update emerges as Leeds United midfielder Marc Roca set for Real Betis move
Another Leeds United exit reportedly seems to be on the cards as Marc Roca is set to move to Spanish side Real Betis on a season-long loan.
According to AS [8 July], the La Liga outfit have negotiated to include a £10.2million option to buy at the end of the season.
There’s still understood to be a “salary gap” which needs to be resolved before the official announcement can be made.
If Leeds were to sell him this summer, this seems like the right price for the midfielder as his move to Elland Road has not been successful.
He was signed last summer in what was an overhaul of the first-team squad and very few players have actually lived up to the billing.
Leeds would rather they get the money right away but there seems to be a clause in the players’ contracts that lets them leave on loan post relegation.
This is not ideally how it should’ve been but it is what it is and the Whites have to deal with a number of exits.
Hopefully, Daniel Farke will be working on getting new deals over the line and will have certain ideas on who would possibly like to move to Elland Road.
They’re going to have to look at budget options and also the right profile of signing as it’s imperative they do not get it wrong.
In other Leeds United news, the club have been handed a boost to sign a Manchester United player this summer with Erik ten Hag likely to sanction his exit.
