Atlético Paranaense confirmed yesterday through its social networks, that Vitor Roque will soon be a player for FC Barcelona, However, the formula is still being worked on to be able to register it.
Barça had always planned to have “O Tigrinho” in the squad this end of the year. His entourage was in Barcelona a few weeks ago and was already looking for all the infrastructure for his landing in December. but the Blaugrana club was looking for a way to register him in January.
Now the decision has been made and Barça prefers to complete the transfer with Paranaense to formalize the process. However, this point cannot yet be confirmed as it depends on the club’s managers reaching an agreement on the sale of Barça Studios. The Barça club is finalizing negotiations with two investment funds – one Arab and one Mexican – to take over the payment that Líbero will fundamentally not make.
TRANSFER OR ASSIGNMENT
The deadline is December 15th and there is a lot of optimism at Barça, which was also communicated to Vitor Roque’s entourage. Should the operation take place, the Blaugrana club will sign him. There is also the possibility of taking advantage of Gavi’s long-term absence to sign the Brazilian attacker.
Barça would have received approval from the league to go this route, but the player could only come on loan to complete his transfer in June. Whatever the case, the Brazilian will be the first and perhaps only reinforcement for Xavi’s team in the winter market.
