Real Madrid have identified Espanyol defensive midfielder Marc Roca as an alternative transfer option for Rennes starlet Eduardo Camavinga, according to Spanish outlet Diario SPORT.

Thus, Madrid have turned their attention for the Spaniard who has been among standout players in the La Liga this season.
Roca is a product of Espanyol’s academy. He debuted for the Budgerigars in 2016. The 23-year-old has featured hor his boyhood club 108 times since then.
As per the source, not the most reliable one for Real Madrid, Espanyol want €40m for the midfielder. Bayern Munich are also keeping close tabs on Roca.
