In the upcoming summer transfer window, one of the most difficult decisions that FC Barcelona will have to make will be the one related to the Brazilian striker, Vitor Roque.

The youngster did not get many minutes under Xavi and would have looked for another team if the former midfielder had remained in charge.

However, with Flick now leading the team, he hopes to impress the German coach. The new coach will also need to consider the issue of his registration with La Liga this summer.

Taking advantage of his uncertain future at the Catalan club, several clubs have shown an interest in the striker, and the Portuguese club Porto is particularly interested in signing him.

They have already contacted the Blaugranes and requested a loan with a buy option for him, while Juventus also have the youngster on their radar.

FC Barcelona have yet to make a decision in this regard, but they have a lot to negotiate with Porto for this operation to become a reality, as the Portuguese club wants the purchase option to remain non-mandatory.

The player himself does not want to leave on loan, and his agent has made it clear that if he leaves, it will only be on a permanent transfer. However, the Catalans do not want to lose him permanently, as he is considered a long-term investment for the club.

In such a situation, SPORT reports that Barcelona have no shortage of suitors for Roque, as reports from Portugal indicate that Atletico Madrid have also entered the race to sign him.

The Mattress Makers are particularly willing to include João Félix in the deal for the Brazilian, especially since they know they will have to send him to Barcelona in August, as the player has ruled out listening to any other offers.

Furthermore, the player has also received offers from some Premier League sides, but it remains to be seen whether these English clubs will be willing to offer the same amount of money that Barcelona paid to Atletico Paranaense to sign the Brazilian.

Similarly, in addition to Juventus, Napoli are another Italian side that wants Roque on a simple loan without any purchase option.

For now, Flick will have to decide whether he wants to retain Roque for the next season, while keeping in view his contract and registration situation.
