Roque preferred the “magic of Barcelona” to the money of Manchester City

Mundo Deportivo reported that Vitor Roque made great sacrifices to join Barcelona this summer.

Barcelona paid 40 million euros to Atletico Paranaense to sign Roque, and he joined early this winter instead of waiting until next summer.

The Brazilian star had the opportunity to join Manchester City, which gave him a greater financial offer and more advantages.

But 18-year-old Roque rejected all the financial temptations he was exposed to at City, as well as the sporting one, preferring to fulfill his lifelong dream of wearing the Barcelona shirt.

Ultimately, Roque told City officials that his only goal in Europe was to play for Barcelona, and whatever their offer, he would prefer “the magic of the Catalan club” and achieve what he had always dreamed of.

Indeed, Roque arrived at the Blaugrana, and has played 38 minutes so far with Barca, but he has not succeeded in opening his scoring record with Xavi Hernandez’s squad yet.
