Reports in the German media confirm that Bayern Munich have decided not to sign Espanyol's young midfielder Marc Roca. The main issue being the player's cost, €40m, and they are now looking at alternatives.
Once Renato Sanches completed his move to Lille, many expected Bayern to replace him with Roca. For now though a deal looks unlikely.
Espanyol have insisted they won't accept anything less than Roca's €40m buyout clause but Bayern feel that is too much.
The 22-year-old midfielder is a key member of David Gallego's squad and has played in every official match so far this season.
Whilst a move to Bayern is off the table at the moment, they haven't ruled out coming back in for him before the transfer window closes.
