Barcelona recently completed the signing of 19-year-old Brazilian mega talent Vitor Roque in the summer. The deal cost them around €40 million, including add-ons, and was finalised in the summer itself.

The teenager has already made his debut for the club, starring in a narrow 1-2 win against Las Palmas, and was awfully close to scoring, as well.

Either way, Barcelona have put a lot of faith in the Brazilian, and will be hoping that he eventually repays it on the pitch in the long-term. But first, they will be using his services to secure the deal for 14-year-old wonderkid Guilherme Ruck.

The youngster, currently plying his trade for Real Valladolid’s reserve team, is one of the biggest young prospects in Spain.

Roque has sent ‘Gui’ his signed Barcelona #19 shirt after completing his move to the Catalan capital, to which he replied, ‘Thank you Tigrinho’ on Instagram.

According to Mundo Deportivo, this is a tactic from the club to sign him at a time when Real Madrid seem to be in the lead for the Brazilian whizkid’s signature.

Barcelona will also have to fend off interest from Real Madrid, Manchester City, and PSG, who are all gunning for his signature.

The blaugranes are hoping to convince him using their future project and, of course, the esteemed La Masia academy, through which multiple youngsters such as Gui have made a name for themselves.

Barcelona plan to repeat the same tactic they used with Lamine Yamal on Gui, incorporating him into their youth setup, and giving him an early debut before breaking him into the first-team when he is old enough.
