Barcelona have signed 18-year-old Brazilian striker Vitor Roque for an initial €30m, with a further €31m in bonuses.

The Catalan giants have confirmed Vitor Roque will arrive at the club in time for next season and will sign a long-term deal at the Camp Nou.

Vitor Roque is expected to join Barcelona’s first team ahead of the 2024/25 season, according to the club.

He will then sign a contract until 2030/31 with a €500m release clause.

Until 2024/25, the 18-year-old will remain part of Brazilian club Athletico Paranaense. He will help them compete in Copa Libertadores and in the national championship.

Barca have officially announced Vitor Roque’s signing. The club reportedly landed the wonderkid striker for €30-35m plus add-ons.

The forward has netted 15 goals and provided 6 assists in 30 appearances for Athletico this season, with most goal contributions coming this year.

Roque becomes Barca’s third signing this summer following the arrivals of Ilkay Gundogan and Inigo Martinez as free agents after the expiration of their contracts with Manchester City and Athletic Bilbao, respectively.
