FC Barcelona have announced the signing of Vítor Roque from the Brazilian club, Athletico Paranaense for an undisclosed fee.
“FC Barcelona and Club Athletico Paranaense have reached an agreement for the transfer of the player Victor Hugo Roque Ferreira, better known as Victor Roque.”
Vitor will remain with the Brazilian outfit for the 2023-24 season and is expected to join the La Liga giant for the 2024/25 season, and he’s expected to sign a contract that will see him stay at the club until the 2030/31 season—with a buy out clause of 500 million euros.
Vítor Roque has made more than 50 league club senior appearances for Cruzeiro and Athletico scored 16 goals plus 6 assists for the latter last season in the Serie A.
The 18-year-old who was the top scorer in the South America U20 tournament is expected to transmit such outstanding form to the club when he joins them officially next season.
