Roque signed for Barcelona from Athletico Paranaense

The representative for Vitor Roque has criticised Xavi’s handling of his client and hinted that if things don’t get better, he may quit Barcelona.

Several teams expressed interest in signing the 19-year-old last summer, including Manchester United. However, the Catalans emerged victorious in the competition for the forward, concluding a €61 million deal with Athletico Paranaense.

The young player has struggled to get minutes under manager Xavi, so the move hasn’t gone well for him in Spain. With just two starts in 13 outings, the Brazilian has played little over 300 minutes across all competitions this season.

During a recent visit on RAC1, he stated:

“I already spoke with Deco. The boy has a contract with Barca and we chose Barca instead of other options where we could earn double the money.

“I am certain that Vitor Roque will be a great player but if Barca doesn’t let him, the club or the coach, I don’t know what happens internally – we will look for another way.

“We do not want a loan. If the club decides that he cannot stay, he will be sold. There are many teams interested in Vitor Roque. If the club does not give space to Vitor we will have to look for a solution. Either he stays or he is transferred, not a loan, it is very dangerous for the boy’s career.

“The best thing would be to stay at Barca, but if he cannot stay we will work for a transfer.”

United apparently became aware of his predicament and contacted his agency regarding a loan switch this summer. If the player’s circumstances don’t get better, Andre Cury has vowed to make a permanent transfer.

Rasmus Hojlund, a top-tier striker that Man United acquired from Atalanta in the summer, is already a member of the team. But they also require a strong substitute for the Denmark international.

Although Roque hasn’t had much of an impact at Barcelona, Xavi hasn’t given him enough chances.The Brazilian appears committed to showcasing his skills at the highest level and has a lot of potential.
