Barcelona plan to loan out Vitor Roque in the summer

Barcelona reportedly plan to loan out Vitor Roque in the summer transfer window. 

The Catalans secured a deal for the 19-year-old last summer after being impressed with his displays for Athletico Paranaense. 

But he stayed at the Brazilian club for the first half of the season and joined Barca during the winter transfer window. 

However, Roque has been struggling for game time under manager Xavi Hernandez. 

The teenage star has made 11 La Liga appearances this campaign but has started only twice. 

According to SPORT, Barcelona intend to loan out Roque in the summer transfer window. 

Xavi announced that he would be stepping down as manager of the La Liga giants in the summer. 

But he has made a U-turn to stay at the club for at least another season. 

The Catalans have had an underwhelming 2023-24 season as they are set to lose the La Liga title to Real Madrid who are now 11 points clear at the top. 

They had a chance to get back in the title race by winning the most recent El Clasico in Madrid. 

But Jude Bellingham’s injury-time winner meant Los Blancos won 3-2 to seal all three points from the thrilling encounter.
