Sent to Barça repeatedly by the press, Vitor Roque is still under contract with Athletico Paranaense, and according to the latest information, the file smelled scorched a few days ago. But in the last few hours, a final reversal of the situation will close the Vitor Roque chapter for good.

Indeed, according to the revelations of Mundo Deportivo, FC Barcelona transmitted the contracts to the club of the 18-year-old striker, to definitively recruit the young player. According Sport, the reigning Spanish champion will pay 31 million euros, but the total amount could reach double (62 million euros) if all the bonuses are fulfilled. The nature of these has not been revealed, but Athletico Paranaense could make the best sale in its history with Vitor Roque.

According to the Spanish press, the formalization should not be long. The striker should sign for 7 seasons (6 plus 1 optional).

Barca want to draw from Chelsea

According to information from DailyMail, another Brazilian, this time from Chelsea, is of interest to the Catalan club. Andrey Santos, 19, was recruited by the Blues in January 2023, from Vasco da Gama, against 12.50 million euros. Loaned to the Brazilian club for the second half of the season, the midfielder is now back at Chelsea. But the English club, 12th in the Premier League last year, are considering a new loan for the captain of Brazil under 20, if the latter does not convince the club’s new coach, Mauricio Pochettino.

Besides Barça, Andrey Santos is followed by two Portuguese clubs, namely Benfica and FC Porto. Under contract with Chelsea for seven years, the Auriverde comes out of a shy 2022-2023 season, with 11 games (and 1 goal) with Vasco de Gama.
