Leeds agree bonuses for Marc Roca transfer, need final answer before deal completed

Leeds United have agreed a bonus scheme with Bayern Munich for the deal to sign Marc Roca, according to Florian Plettenberg on Tuesday [14 June].

The Sky Sports journalist has reported that the Whites are waiting on a final “yes” from the Spaniard before everything can be officially finalised.

It is shared that Roca is leaning towards a move to Elland Road, despite reports elsewhere insisting he has already agreed on personal terms.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Plettenberg shared the latest as the move appears to be edging ever closer as the week goes on.

“Total agreement between Leeds and Bayern today: €12m [£10.4m] and bonuses,” he wrote.

“Roca can sign a contract until 2026. He’s the desired central midfielder of Marsch. Roca has to say yes now, after that, the deal will be finalized but he’s leaning towards a move to Leeds.”

Here We Go.

Surely all that is left to be done is the medical.

Leeds are said to have agreed personal terms, the fee with Bayern Munich and now even bonuses – Victor Orta is simply leaving no stone unturned.

Jesse Marsch appears to have identified the Spaniard as the one midfielder he would like, and he is set to get his wish, hopefully to play alongside Kalvin Phillips.

The Yorkshire Pirlo and his future will surely come under the spotlight after this deal is completed, with his contract the next priority for everyone at Elland Road.

Phillips will return home after his last game with England against Hungary on Tuesday evening, and Andrea Radrizzani has to get that new contract sorted.

With Roca to become the third new signing of the summer already, he must use that early business as something to tempt Phillips with and hopefully he sticks around.

Time to get this one done.
