Real Betis are growing concerned that they won’t be able to keep Leeds United midfielder Marc Roca at the club next season thanks to his ‘very high’ purchase clause.
That’s according to Mucho Deporte, who say the player is ‘at risk’ of being sent back to Elland Road thanks to his high transfer clause.
They explain that Roca arrived on loan from Leeds in the summer without a purchase option included in the deal, an option that would only become possible if the Whites were not promoted to the Premier League at the end of the season.
If they don’t go up there is a possibility Roca will be loaned out again but if not, a permanent move to Betis is difficult as Leeds offered them a ‘very high’ purchase clause.
To get Roca would take ‘a good amount of money’ and Betis are not exactly flush with it at this moment in time.
They’d love to keep the Spaniard as he’s having a great season and is well integrated into the team under Manuel Pellegrini, but that’s ‘at risk’ at this moment in time.
