FC Barcelona’s quest for 18-year-old Brazilian striker Vitor Roque to strengthen their team for the next season continues. Meanwhile, the player impresses with his skills at Athletico Paranaense. Fernandinho, ex-Manchester City midfielder, now a teammate of Vitor Roque, is impressed with the young talent. Recently, he recommended him to Barça.
Fernandinho praised Roque’s performance in the recent win over Flamengo (2-1) and stated that signing him this summer would be a wise decision for the club. He added that Vitor Roque has a bright future and that his natural path is to excel in international and world football.
Fernandinho is confident about Vitor Roque’s potential and his ability to grow as a footballer. He described him as a humble and hardworking person who listens to the technical staff and veteran players’ guidance.
Despite the interest from Barça, the club’s financial situation may hinder Roque’s arrival, as Athletico Paranaense is demanding a considerable sum of money for his transfer. Furthermore, there are other priorities that the club needs to address.
