Vitor Roque's Agent Confirms Striker Will Join Barcelona

However, the Catalan club signed Roque from Athletico Paranaense in the summer in a deal worth €35m (£30m/$38m).


The striker was set to arrive in Catalunya next summer.

Barcelona could not register him immediately due to the FFP (Financial Fair Play) regulations imposed by La Liga.


However, Xavi has spoken of the need for reinforcements in attack in January and the club is finding ways to make room for Roque within the FFP budget.

All parties have agreed to fast track the deal and the same was confirmed by his agent Andre Cury.


“Everything is ready for Vitor Roque to sign for Barcelona in January 2024.

“Also, everything is agreed with the clubs and with the player.

“Nobody has told me otherwise.

“Vitor Roque will be in Barcelona’s sports project in January 2024,’ he told RAC1


Roque is currently nursing an ankle injury that he suffered against Internacional.

He had to be stretchered off after he was at the receiving end of a strong tackle from defender Nicolas Hernandez.


Also, it was reported that he had ruptured a ligament in his right ankle and could be out for three months.

However, Curey says that he is ahead of schedule in his recovery and should be fit within a month.
