Barcelona agreed a deal with Athletico Paranaense during the summer to sign Vitor Roque, although the 18-year-old forward had to remain in Brazil as he could not be registered with his new club due to financial issues.
He has continued playing for Athletico PR in the meantime, although he has been injured for the last few weeks. In the meantime, he has taken the opportunity to get married, wedding Dayana Lins in a ceremony that took place earlier this week.
It may well be that Roque and his new wife head to Catalonia in the new couple of months. Barcelona, and especially head coach Xavi Hernandez, are desperate to orchestrate Roque’s arrival in January, although like in the summer, it will depend on whether there is enough space in Financial Fair Play for him to be registered with La Liga.
