The final week of the transfer window has begun as clubs look to complete last-minute deals to strengthen the squad. Bayern Munich is also expected to be busy in the next few days in terms of arrivals and departures.

At the end of last week, it was reported in Germany that Marc Roca could also seal a permanent or temporary move away from Bavaria. However, the latest noise from media does suggest that the Spanish midfielder will get a fair chance under Julian Nagelsmann.

According to Spox’s Kerry Hau, Roca is not leaving Die Roten this summer. The Spanish midfielder will get more opportunities in the first team during the campaign. Since Hau has been consistently and reliably reported about Roca in the past, this update on Roca’s future looks much more concrete.

The Spanish midfielder has stepped up his recovery from a ligament injury that he suffered in mid-July. On Monday, Roca returned to training on the pitch as he is likely to make his first appearance for the campaign after the first international break of the season.

More from Bayern Strikes

Roca had a difficult debut season with Die Roten as he struggled to get playing time under Hansi Flick. The Spaniard put in more effort during summer to be ready for the new campaign. However, his pre-season was cut short in the first week itself due to a serious injury in training.

Bayern may add Marcel Sabitzer without any departures

Despite Roca staying at the club, Die Roten is still looking to add a midfielder to the squad. It has been extensively reported in Germany that the defending champions want to sign Marcel Sabitzer from RB Leipzig. The Austrian midfielder is entering the final year of his contract at Leipzig, so Rekordmeister will be looking to get him for a cut-price deal.

However, it has been widely suggested in Germany that Bayern is looking to add Sabitzer after sanctioning departures. Corentin Tolisso was expected to be the big-name departure in midfield, but the Frenchman is not near an exit.

Mickael Cuisance is another midfielder that is expected to leave Die Roten. However, the Frenchman was not part of the squad last summer, so his exit will not exactly create a place for a new midfielder. In such a scenario, Sabitzer could end up taking the place of Javi Martinez in the squad. The Spanish midfielder left the club earlier this summer on a free transfer.
