Real Madrid have been active in the transfer window. So far so good but they will want to also end the window on a high.
But where is left to strengthen? Midfield if they are to consider this the perfect transfer window. With Dani Ceballos out on loan, it’s a no-brainer for Zinedine Zidane and company.
Fingers will initially be pointed towards Paul Pogba. He is rumoured to want a move away from Manchester United.
However, he won’t be cheap if he is to leave United, hence alternatives must be addressed.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid have done just that.
They have located Marc Roca of Espanyol. The 22-year-old would only cost Los Blancos about €40m, whereas if they were to pursue Pogba then they would need to fork out upwards of €150m.
Real Madrid got off to a flying start to La Liga this weekend.
Luka Modric received a red card in the game against Celta Vigo.
According to Sport English, this could set the Croatia international aside for a few games. This plus his age makes it an obvious choice for Real Madrid. They must sign Marc Roca.
Marc Roca is similar to Casemiro in many ways; he is a defensive midfielder who likes to dictate the play from deep at times. He would be a worthy investment for Zidane.
Should Real sign Marc Roca this summer?
