On Friday, L’Equipe reported that reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have activated Marc Roca's €40 million (R672 million) release clause to sign the midfielder from Espanyol.

Roca will reportedly join the Bavarians on a five-year contract, and become the club's seventh signing of the window after Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez, Jann-Fiete Arp, Ivan Perisic, Philippe Coutinho and Mickael Cuisance.

Bayern reportedly see the 22-year-old as a direct replacement for Portuguese starlet Renato Sanches, who is said to be closing in on a €25 million (R420 million) move to Ligue 1 side Lille.
