Bayern Munich have completed the signing of Spanish midfielder Marc Roca on Tuesday. After the Germans confirmed the agreement between the player and his club Espanyol on Sunday, Bayern finalised the deal on Tuesday. Roca arrived in Germany on Tuesday morning before signing his multi-year contract with the club.
“I’m very happy. This is a dream come true for me. I think FC Bayern is the best club in the world and has strong tradition. I’m really looking forward to wearing the colours of this great club”, the Spanish midfield was quoted by the official website of his new club. Roca immediately joined his new teammates at a training session in the afternoon.
Sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić is delighted Bayern have signed a strong replacement for Thiago Alcantara, who left for Liverpool: “We’re very happy to have signed Marc Roca. He’s an outstanding fit for our team both as a player and a person, and will continue to develop here with us. We’re sure he’ll add great value to our team.”
