Barcelona want €45 million to sell Vitor Roque this summer

Barcelona will demand around €45 million to part ways with 19-year-old Brazilian wonderkid Vitor Roque amid his links with Manchester United.

According to a report by Brazilian outlet UOL, a permanent exit from Barcelona in the summer transfer window might be on the cards for Vitor Roque. The Catalan giants are ready to part ways with the 19-year-old wonderkid if his suitors fork out around €45 million to secure his services. Recent updates have linked him with Premier League bigwigs Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Vitor Roque and his Barcelona travails

Vitor Roque has endured a frustrating stint with Barcelona thus far since arriving from Athletico Paranaense in January. The Brazilian international had a lot of hype and fanfare surrounding him when he arrived in Catalonia a few months ago after showing incredible potential in his homeland.

However, things have not gone to plan for the teenage sensation, who has managed only 310 minutes of game time thus far across 11 appearances in all competitions, finding the back of the net twice. So, it is hardly surprising that the 19-year-old has grown in frustration with every passing weekend.

Vitor Roque’s agent, Andre Cury, recently sent a warning to Barcelona, claiming a loan exit is not an option for the player. Meanwhile, the youngster’s situation has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile Premier League clubs, including Manchester United.

Premier League move on the horizon?

Manchester United’s interest in Vitor Roque is understandable. The Red Devils are scouring the market for a versatile attacker heading into the summer transfer window. The Barcelona prodigy thus fits the bill as he can share game time with Rasmus Hojlund while also being an option for the right-wing berth.

So, the young attacker has emerged as a viable target for Manchester United. Meanwhile, the 19-year-old Brazilian wonderkid will not cost a bomb, with Barcelona slapping a price tag of €45 million on him.

Manchester United should have the funds to cough up €45 million and secure Vitor Roque’s services. However, it will not be surprising if other high-profile suitors also emerge in the race to sign the teenage sensation from Barcelona in the summer transfer window.
