Barcelona to face tough time to sign the young Brazilian

FC Barcelona

Manchester United are claimed to have made a last-ditch attempt to sign Barcelona bound forward Vitor Roque.

According to Mundo Deportivo,

Manchester United have expressed late interest in the teenage striker.The report claims:

Powerful teams like Manchester United, Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain have called Vitor Roque’s entourage in recent days, Pressing him to change his mind and agree to join their respective projects.”

Roque is having a great season at the Brazilian club as he has produced a run of impressive displays for them in the final third.

The Brazilian has made 65 senior appearances for his current employers thus far,

And scoring 22 goals and earning eight assists in the process across all fronts.

His current contract at Athletico Paranense will run out in the summer of 2027.

Barcelona are facing competition for Roque which will make it difficult to sign the youngster on the cheap during this summer transfer window.

The Brazilian is a technically gifted footballer who can make dangerous runs with the ball in the opponent’s half.

However, Roque is still quite raw and would need time before he can establish himself as a world-class footballer at the highest level.

As per the reports the contract does have a ballon d’or clause.

Contract with Barcelona

Barça would be shelling out a sum of €35 million plus €10 million in add-ons for the 18-year-old striker.

On top of that, Roque would be signing a six-year contract until 2026,

With a salary of less than €3 million per year and a release clause worth €1 billion.

Roque has been in red-hot form in 2023 which is working very well in his favour.

Having already netted 15 goals from 29 matches for his club, while setting up five more.

But Barcelona must make some sales to ensure his registration this summer or wait for his arrival until next year.
