According to a report by Roger Torello in Mundo Deportivo, Juventus are considering the possibility of signing Barcelona forward Vitor Roque on loan. 

Roque, 19, is currently waiting to find out what his future holds for the next season, although it is stated that Barcelona’s initial plan is to keep the Brazilian player in their team. 

He has gone through a six-month period of adaptation but did not get many chances to play under the coach, Xavi. 

Flick, on the other hand, is interested in keeping Roque, but everything depends on the salary cap that Barcelona has available. 

It is to be noted that Roque’s contract has not yet been officially registered with LaLiga. During his adaptation period, he managed to play mainly because Gavi was injured. 

For the upcoming season, however, Barcelona need to have enough salary cap space to register Roque properly.

While Barcelona are waiting for guidance from La Liga regarding their financial situation, Roque remains a valuable player on the market. 

According to the aforementioned outlet, Juventus, who are in the process of hiring Thiago Motta, are considering asking Barcelona for a loan deal for Roque. However, before making this move, Juventus need to lower their current payroll. 

Right now, Moise Kean is expected to depart, Arkadiusz Milik will undergo surgery for a meniscus injury, and the club is pressuring Federico Chiesa to either renew his contract, which ends in 2025 or to be sold this summer.

Meanwhile, other teams are also keeping an eye on Roque’s situation. This includes Portuguese side FC Porto and even Atletico de Madrid, who plans to part ways with Alvaro Morata. 

Additionally, several Premier League teams are also watching closely to see what steps Barcelona will take with Vitor Roque. Within La Liga, Valencia have been credited with an interest.
