Brazilian wonder kid Vitor Roque is finally arriving at Camp Nou

Victor Roque is anticipated to join FC Barcelona by the end of 2023.

FC Barcelona is ready to sign Brazilian rising talent Vitor Roque far sooner than his expected arrival date of July 2024. According to recent speculations, the 18-year-old forward might join the club during the winter transfer window as a replacement for Gavi.

Vitor Roque and Barcelona had already confirmed an agreement to recruit the young star from Brazilian club Athletico Paranaense, agreeing to a deal until the 2030-31 season with a €500 million buyout clause. He was supposed to join the Catalans in July 2024. The Brazilian forward had several notable performances in the Brazilian league, which drew the attention of various clubs from all around Europe.

Barcelona intends to hasten Roque’s arrival, to have him integrated into the club before the end of the year. This deal provides a plausible alternative for their injured star forward, Gavi, for the rest of the 2023-24 season. Furthermore, Barcelona may use up to 80% of Gavi’s €5 million salary to aid the Brazilian player’s registration.

Vitor Roque, a Brazilian wonderkid, is due to join Barcelona later this month after signing for £26 million from Athletico Paranaense last summer. The Culers will expect the youthful forward to make an immediate impact at Camp Nou.

Roque is Athletico’s top player this season, with 12 goals and three assists in 24 Serie A Brazil games. As a result, his participation in Barcelona would allow Xavi to rely more on youthful talent, which is critical for the team’s La Liga title hopes. Furthermore, the squad now lacks the necessary ingredients to stay in the race, and fans expect Roque to revive their campaign.
