Vitor Roque’s dream move to Barcelona may be turning sour. After a limited role since joining in January, his agent’s public comments demanding more playing time have fueled speculation of a summer exit.

The Brazilian, though, may have no shortage of suitors in the coming summer, with Manchester United among the clubs interested in his services.

Barcelona open to a swap deal

As reported by Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are now open to a swap deal involving Mason Greenwood and Vitor Roque.

Greenwood has impressed at Getafe, and Barca see him as a potential solution. The Englishman has racked up ten goals and six assists in La Liga this term, emerging as one of Getafe’s top performers.

However, United prefer separate transfers, which could be a stumbling block.

Adding another layer of complexity, Roque’s agent has made it clear a loan is not an option. This suggests a permanent transfer could be the only way forward, potentially aligning with Barca’s interest in Greenwood.

While transfer rumours swirl, United has secured Greenwood’s future by extending his contract until 2026, likely to ensure a higher transfer fee.

Interestingly, Barca president Joan Laporta inquired about Greenwood with Getafe’s president, but the Blaugrana’s sporting director doesn’t seem convinced.

The situation remains fluid. Roque’s unhappiness and United’s interest in him present an opportunity for Barca to address their attacking needs. However, United’s preference for separate deals and Roque’s agent’s stance against loans could complicate things.

One more thing to consider would be Greenwood’s controversial past. The forward’s previous sexual assault allegations will not sit well with Barcelona fans and board alike, meaning the club must look for other alternatives in the market.
