After La Liga published the salary caps for all clubs for the 2023/24 seasons, doubts emerged about Barcelona’s ability to register Vitor Roque during the January transfer window.
The Catalans’ salary limit was set at €270 million, while their wage bill is already around €404 million.
Given the situation, it was suggested that even though Barcelona have sewn up Roque’s signing, his incorporation in the January window could become difficult.
Barcelona calm about situation
Now, though, as per a fresh update from Sique Rodriguez, Barcelona have already informed Roque’s agent that they will be able to incorporate him during the winter transfer window.
Despite the unfavourable situation with regard to Financial Fair Play, Barça have asked the young forward’s camp to stay calm and that his registration will be carried out in January.
This is in line with what manager Xavi Hernandez said in his press conference on Friday, claiming that sporting director Deco had informed him that Roque would be arriving at the turn of the year.
“Deco has told me that Vitor Roque will come in January. We’ll see but in principle, there should be no problems with his incorporation. Although I don’t think it’s the time to talk about it either,” he had said.
A key addition
Given Robert Lewandowski’s age and up-and-down form of late, it is vital that Barcelona have Roque at their disposal as early as possible.
The 18-year-old Brazilian wonderkid has been in red-hot form at Athletico Paranaense in 2023, scoring 20 goals and setting up eight more across all competitions.
The teenager’s promise, potential, and ability to play through the middle or on the flank would make him an exciting addition for Xavi.
Despite there being concerns over the FFP situation, for now, Barcelona are calm and have transferred a similar message to Roque and his agent about his incorporation in January.
